Horn Book
Cat is looking for a tasty bird, but because he has a bell on his collar, he can't catch anything but 'feathers for lunch.' A visual and aural treat bursting with brightly colored birds and lush flowers, all of which are labeled. Graphically appealing and entertaining; perfect for use with large groups.

Ehlert brings her fresh, distinctive eye for color and design to the world of birds,"""" said PW about this collection of """"stunning"""" cutout compositions, """"at once an inspiring introduction to bird-watching and a pure visual treat."""" Ages 3-8. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- This unusual book is both a story and a beginning nature guide. A pet cat wants to vary his diet with wild birds, but each attempt gains him only feathers. Twelve different bird species are carefully illustrated with scientific accuracy and can be used to teach identification; the final four pages offer additional facts. On each page, the bird's typical call is printed and plants pictured are named. The rhyming story appears in large, bold typeface, but the rhythm is somewhat awkward and the word choices forced. Against the white background, cut-outs of painted paper create vivid shapes that are not realistic and yet manage to include all the field identification marks. Small children will appreciate the apparent simplicity of the pictures while older readers will be more aware of their subtleties. --Carolyn Caywood, Virginia Beach Public Library
