Cat’s Night Out – Winner of the 2010 Governor General’s Literary Award for Children’s Literature Illustration
Cat’s Night Out written by Caroline Stutson and illustrated by Jon Klassen
Picture book published by Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books
The jury’s comments were as follows: “In Cat’s Night Out, Jon Klassen’s highly imaginative and clever illustrations, with their subdued, delicate colours and their minimal movement, mysteriously transform a smoky New York night into a grooving and pulsating background for his cool dancing cats.”
My thoughts about Cat’s Night Out”… It’s Saturday night and, as Easy Street grows dark, it is time for the neighborhood felines to kick up their heels. Featuring evocative illustrations that include hidden numbers, this rhyming counting book also includes a wide variety of dance steps, costumes and vocabulary. Highly recommended.
