There Are No Cats in This Book

Viviane Schwartz, Candlewick, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-7636-4954-8

Tiny, Moonpie, and André—the primary colored cats from There Are Cats in This Book—are back and looking to escape the confines of this book. They push and jump (through flaps and pop-ups) but nothing seems to work. Finally, the travel-crazy cats ask for help: "Close your eyes and wish for us... Wish us out into the world." The cats' sophomore outing retains all the energy of the first, and readers will be glad that, while the cats do manage to leave, they don't stay away for long. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)
