Love that Kitty! The most adorable picture book of the year invites the very youngest cat lovers to find Kitty in the world around them.
Chloe loves kitties. She wants a cat so much that she sees Kitty everywhere she goes: at the bus stop, in her backyard, in the starry night sky, even in her dreams. From debut children's book illustrator Yasmine Surovec comes a story so adorable that if you don't already love cats you will by the time you're done reading it. In the tradition of iconic preschool books like Where's Spot?, I See Kitty uses bright, bold artwork to appeal to very young readers and charm them for generations to come.
Sanrio's minimalist cuteness might be an influence for this story of a kitten-obsessed girl from comics creator Surovec (Cat Versus Human). Chloe, a petite preschooler in a polka-dot dress, eyes a "Pet Adoptions" sign and beams with joy at the sight of an orange-and-white kitten. Her mother says, "Not today," but her coy smile does not rule out the possibility of a future pet. "Now Chloe sees Kitty everywhere she goes," writes Surovec as Chloe points out cat shapes in a cloud, the auburn bouffant of a woman waiting for the bus, a tower of pink cotton candy, and her bubble bath. Her bedroom decorations project the same theme, and "At night, Chloe climbs into her bed... and sees Kitty in her dreams." In her first book for children, Surovec takes visual cues from manga for young readers, and her simple hide-and-seek spreads recall Steven Savage's Where's Walrus? Chloe gets her wish in a sweet conclusion that could have readers seeing Kitty themselves. Ages 3 6.
