Seven Bad Cats
Moe Bonneau, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky (JUNE) Hardcover $17.99 (40pp), 978-1-4926-5710-1
Count along with a beleaguered little sailor as a mischievous crew of stowaway cats wreaks havoc aboard her tiny fishing boat, causing it to capsize. Softly tinted, translucent watercolors and waves of rhyming verse depict seven shades of frisky felines and one wee captain in a yellow raincoat and crimson cap. They work together, arriving safely ashore and proving that even bad cats can be good sometimes, too. It’s a delightful read-aloud adventure.
