Atticus Caticus

author: Sarah Maizes
illustrator: Kara Kramer

Atticus Caticus,
ears like a bat-tat-ticus!

Snap your fingers to the beat as a boy introduces us to his beloved (and oh-so-recognizably feline) cat. Whether Atticus is lying in the sun or stealing a sip from a water glass, sharpening his nails on a favorite chair or settling in for the night on his boy’s head, this cat will win your heart—and maybe inspire you to improvise a few riffs of poetry about your own animal friends.

Follow a young boy’s furry friend through the course of a day in an infectiously rhythmic read-aloud for cool cats of any species.
