Celebrity Cat Reviews


An excellent way of getting young children to look closely at some paintings. -- Margaret Mallet English Association Magazine A tour of important paintings in major collections is this time conducted via a narrative thread spun around the absence of cats in any of the pictures... It's a difficult trick to pull off visually and Bee Willey's distinctive part-digital paintings cleverly bring the whole idea to life. Books for Keeps Children will love the beautiful pastel colour illustrations and hopefully be inspired to see the paintings for themselves, as they follow Felissima and her friends into the art world.
