Praise for I Am Cat!

"Bently’s kitty’s-eye view of a day is a rhyming romp that young feline aficionados will enjoy."–Kirkus Reviews

"An insightful title for teaching point-of-view or personification, this could also be useful for engaging children with poetry, or for nudging them to write about pets—real or wished for—in their lives. A delightful combination of art and verse that entertains and appropriately honors the magnificence of being in a world where there are cats."–School Library Journal, starred review
