In this gorgeous picture book, readers have the chance to experience multiple points of view. A child, a dog, a fox, a fish, a mouse, a bee, a bird, a flea, a snake, a skunk, a worm, and a bat all see a cat, but their perspectives are radically different. As the cat moves across the pages, his size is imposing and devilish when observed by a mouse, but the dog and fox encounter a tasty morsel of their own. Snakes perceive threats by detecting heat, so the feline intruder is a multi-colored monster. Imagine a fish in a bowl peering into the world beyond, and he meets two swelling orbs from the other side of the glass. Despite the contrary viewpoints, that cat "...walked through the world, with its whiskers, ears, and paws...." The surprise will come when that cat sees himself.
