Goodnight, Rainbow Cats

Bàrbara Castro Urío. Chronicle, $10.99 (26p) ISBN 978-1-4521-8213-1
A kaleidoscopic cast of 12 cats say goodnight in this contemporary interactive die-cut board book, winner of a 2019 Bologna Ragazzi Award. One by one, variously colored cats approach the cut-out door of a big white house. As each enters the home, a window appears on the next page, illuminated by the hue of the entrant settling in for bed. Featureless aside from white eyes, the kitties are simply drawn, making them suitable companions to Urío’s plain, repetitious narration: “Here comes Little Crimson Cat, yawning on her way.” The unfrilly approach rightly places all the emphasis on the book’s die-cut innovation—it’s magic to watch as the white house slowly transforms into a rainbow of slumbering felines. Ages up to 3. (Nov.)
