In this brilliant book about perception, we see a cat from the point of view of a series of animals, from a boy to a fish to a bat. Each view is beautifully rendered, the media and style capturing the unique view of each animal. Reminiscent of Eric Carle yet decidedly original, Wenzel’s sparse, poetic text and stunning illustrations make They All Saw a Cat one of the year’s best picture books.
