The Little Cats ABC Book

Martin Leman, Author Simon & Schuster $13 (1p) ISBN 978-0-671-88612-7
Folk art-style paintings of chunky, bright-eyed cats are the focus of this versified alphabet book. Assorted kitties indulge in routine activities, e.g., eyeballing birds and bees, lapping milk and simply being decorative. Even the famous Cheshire Cat makes an appearance. Paired with each cat painting is a blocky alphabet letter, evocative of an old-fashioned wooden typeface, which Leman ( Comic & Curious Cats ) incorporates into his sprightly rhyming couplets (``U is for Uri, who's in quite a fix. / V is for Vera, who's up to her tricks''). A final spread shows the alphabet and the text in their entirety. This slim volume will be catnip to feline fanciers. Ages 4-7. (Mar.)
