A few years ago, this splendid book won the Children’s Choice award in the New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards, and it’s easy to see why.
I once owned a very snazzy pair of pink cow pyjamas. Cat’s selection of pyjamas put my paltry effort to shame. Every night he sports a fine themed-pair that influence his dreams, sometimes in not such a great way.
the Cat wears
and dreams a dream of lunar trips, rocket ships,
Saturn, Mars and shooting stars.
What a dream of space delight, for the Cat in the night.”
He also has ocean, garden, road, jungle, sky, and monster options!
The language and rhyme are lovely, and the fabulous bold illustrations make this a great choice for storytime.
