Lesléa Newman’s bio

ABC Cats: An Alpha-Cat Book

author: Lesléa Newman
illustrator: Isabella Kung

Adorable cat with eyes of gold.
Baby cat just two weeks old.

From curious to elegant, grouchy to inquisitive, rowdy to tangled to . . . well, unusual (who says cats don’t swim in the tub?), these twenty-six charming felines interact with oversize alphabet letters on rhyming spreads. Author Lesléa Newman and illustrator Isabella Kung offer a cat’s-eye concept book that makes the ABCs go down easy—and is sure to inspire many a repeat viewing.

A beguiling array of felines from A to Z makes learning the alphabet the cat’s pajamas.
