Synopsis

Meet Toots, the lovable feline terror of the house

Toots will win you over just as easily as she walks all over you. She eats, plays, naps, and comes and goes as she pleases. But she is so lovable that you’ll want her to be your very own animal companion.

In this collection of poems, an ode to the author’s own cat, Karla Kuskin’s evocative and whimsical phrases perfectly capture Toot’s attitude and charm. Vibrant, playful illustrations by Lisze Bechtold make the pages come alive with feline energy.
