Another Margaret Wise Brown book, Sneakers, the Seaside Cat, taken from the 1955 publication Sneakers: Seven Stories About a Cat, gets full-bleed illustrations by acclaimed artist of felines Anne Mortimer. As the family cat visits the ocean for the first time, his attention to detail and exploration of his surroundings (attempting to catch a fish, listening to the call of seagulls) lead readers to a sensory experience.
