Review

A little red cat leaves home, unprepared for the adventure he’s about to embark on. He encounters everything from alligators to fire-breathing dragons on his journey. Though sparse with words, this tale provides a visual rendering of the alphabet that is sure to delight a young audience. The imagery is reminiscent of early cartoons in its simple, yet action-packed design. Although this tale offers little chance to improve reading skills, it presents an opportunity for beginning learners to recognize the alphabet. This book would suit a preschool or Kindergarten classroom well.

Recommended. RaeAnn Jent, Centennial Library Intern
