Where has the Little Old Cat been?

To see this and that
Said the Little Old Cat . . .

Where does the Little Old Fish swim?

Wherever I wish
Said the Little Old Fish . . .

Have you also wondered where a cat or a squirrel has been or where a bird flies or a whale sails? How about why a bunny runs? With playful, rhyming verse, where have you been? perfectly captures the wonderful, wise questions that children ask every day.

The treasured text by Margaret Wise Brown, author of goodnight moon, has been newly illustrated by two-time Caldecott Medalists Leo and Diane Dillon, creating a picture-book classic that children will love to see, to hear, and to read again and again.
