Hi, Cat! by Ezra Jack Keats - hardcvr
When I was little, I read a gazillion Ezra Jack Keats books and they were all wonderful, but this one remains a particular favorite. I feel very lucky that so many of his books are still in print for children today. :D
On his way to hang out with the neighborhood kids, Archie very innocently greets a stray cat who follows him and gets in the way.
The cat ruins everything – Archie’s street show is a mess and his audience drifts away. But things aren’t all bad: when Archie goes, the cat follows him all the way home, too!
Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983) was the beloved author and/or illustrator of more than eighty-five books for children.
