Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Nat has a talent for sleeping all day long. Name any place in the house and Nat can sleep in, on, under, or sprawled over it. In fact, Nat is so devoted to slumber that the imaginative antics of a crazy kitten don't seem to bother him one bit, until… When the nighttime quiet falls, when strange shadows fill the halls… Now Nat is all fired up and ready to go! Will the kitten be able to keep up, or is it time for her to find the perfect place to settle down for a wee nap? Victoria Allenby's rhythmic verse perfectly accompanies Tara Anderson's irresistible art. Cat lovers young and old will delight in this not-quite-ready-for-bedtime treat.
From The Publisher*Nat the Cat can sleep in, under, or sprawled across anything. But can he sleep through the antics of the world's most energetic kitten? A rhyming bedtime book for the very young.
Review Quote*Young readers will enjoy the brief rhymed text and find themselves chiming in on the repeated refrain, "Nat the cat can sleep like that!" And they will especially relish telling the unwritten story depicted in the large, mixed-media illustrations....[W]hether sleeping or cavorting through the house, these two kitties are sure to win youngsters' hearts."
Review Quote*The simple rhyming text listing the odd (yet realistic) places Nat can sleep during the daytime and all the silly mischief he and his black-and-white kitten sidekick get up to at night will hook young listeners. The watercolor, acrylic and pencil illustrations of floppy, goggle-eyed Nat and his buddy are a just-right pairing. Good kitty fun that will demand repeated reads.
