This is NOT a Cat!
At mouse school, the students' first lesson is to recognize danger. And that would mean cat-danger. Different pictures are shown to the students. Each pointing out what a cat is not. The lesson is interrupted by what appears to be a real cat sneaking into the classroom. But there are a couple of surprise endings to this simple little story.
I can imagine young ones loving this book. There are few words, but not many are necessary. And for a child who is learning to read, all of the words used in the story are the same five words used in the title.
This is Not a Cat by David Larochelle and illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka is definitely a book worth your time.
