School Library Journal - 11/01/2015 PreS-Gr 1—This imaginative early reader will help build new readers' confidence. The text uses just 20 unique one- and two-syllable words to recount a feline's shopping adventure. On the top floor of a colorful apartment building (shown in cross-section) resides Cat, and the text informs readers that "Cat liked fish." With dinner on his mind, he goes down the steps, past his neighbors' apartments, and onto a busy street. Cat goes in and out of five bold and bright establishments: a horn shop, bookstore, art supply shop, garden store, and, finally, a market for his prized fish, picking up something for each of his neighbors as well as his own treat. When Cat returns home, the text explains, "All were happy./And Cat was happy." Henry's detailed, eye-catching illustrations dramatically expand the simple story line. VERDICT An excellent addition to the series, and an ideal choice for a beginning reader shelves.—Brianne Colombo, Pequannock Township Public Library, NJ - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
