The perfect place for a mouse is inside a cozy, warm house, but a cat lives there too, and once the cat sees the mouse, a chase ensues. As the cat and mouse scurry about-on top of a chair, inside a box, outside a window, through a hole-young readers will learn about important prepositions that help them understand where one object is in relation to another. At the end of this colorful chase, the cat and mouse curl up together and nap until they're ready to start the whole thing again. Britta Teckentrup's eye-catching, simple illustrations are cleverly enhanced with cut-outs that help reinforce the words, providing a unique and fun interactive experience that teaches young readers about basic prepositions.

"An ultimately reassuring, sweet story, with just enough excitement to delight young readers." -KIRKUS
"Ideal for one-on-one reading, this double-duty board book teaches spatial concepts while enthralling its audience." -School Library Journal
"Britta Teckentrup's Cat & Mouse uses rhyming text and smartly placed die cuts to create a feeling of tension as a statuesque black cat chases a tiny white mouse. In and out of doors, holes and windows the mouse runs, the cat never far behind. This game of cat and mouse is suspenseful, but young readers have no need to worry--Teckentrup's last page makes it very clear the chase was all in fun."-Shelf Awareness
