Meet Milton. From precious kitten to precocious cat, this quintessential feline will charm children and adults alike. As he shares his experiences hunting, eating and sleeping, Milton, with his ever-elegant black and white coat, velvety paws and sharp claws, will win hearts with his independent nature. Playful illustrations and a simple, funny text make Milton the perfect picturebook for cat-lovers of all ages.
The simplicity and expressiveness of the pictures in this small book is reminiscent of Jules Feiffer's recent Bark, George. Here, though, the art is in black-and-white, and there's really no story. But even without color or plot, this has exceptional charm for cat lovers, young and old. Using a few well-chosen words, Milton the cat does the talking, introducing himself and his highly "exceptional" characteristics: his "velvet paws," curious nose, alert eyes, and his "fearless personality." With each turn of the page Milton's self-satisfied nature become more evident, and the comedy richer. Ardalan's artwork captures Milton (in whole or and in parts) in all his two-tone glory--"busy" sitting on a chair, chasing mice (if he so chooses), and warming to life under the glow of a light bulb. There's certainly no shortage of cat books, but this is definitely one of a kind.
