Hamilton, Tim. Is That a Cat? Holiday House, 2015. $16.95. ISBN 978-0-8234-3384-1. Unp. Ages 1-8. P8/Q8
This is a funny story about a lonely cat who wants another cat to play with. He notices a cat tail hanging out the window but it really is the umbrella crook of an elf. The story gets more silly as you think you are looking at an elephant but it is a horn, etc. At the end all the strange things, animals and people stay together and have a party. Children who have a great imagination will love this story and they will like guessing what it really is that they are seeing.
