Reviews - What do customers think about Hi, Cat (Picture Books)?
Archie meets a cat Sep 6, 2001
Archie says "hi" to a cat, then it follows him around. Archie and Peter then put on a street show, and the cat jumps inside Archie's paper bag costume, and the show is over! The cat ruined the performance!
This is another solid book from Ezra Jack Keats. Archie is also a character in his _Whistle for Willie_, and several others. Peter is the same character from _Whistle for Willie_, _Peter's Chair_, and _A Letter to Amy_.
Archie shows how to make the best of a bad situation, and the characters show cleverness and ingenuity. The sense of playful spontaneity is probably better conveyed here than in Keats' other books. Highly recommended.
Hi, Cat! Pre-Reading Sensational Jun 21, 2000
Hi, Cat! by Ezra Jack Keats is a timeless story of a young boy's encounter with a less-than-predictable cat. The soundtrack and page-turn signals keep pre-schoolers glued to the brightly colored pages of Mr. Keats artistic illustrations. My preschoolers love the background noise and animal sounds. The book and cassette tape are both winners!
Cute Story! Mar 29, 2000
A funny story about a cat's playfulness and how it interfered with two boy's drama for neighborhood friends.
