Editorial Reviews

"From its alliterative title to the closing surprise, A Carnival of Cats is a fun, informative read. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

"Ghigna and Bridgeman offer a rhyming guessing game featuring 10 cats, set against the festive atmosphere of a carnival. Pennants, balloons, lanterns, and confetti adorn Bridgeman’s mixed-media illustrations, while readers can turn the pages to complete Ghigna’s playful rhymes...Cat lovers of any age should be delighted."

— Publishers Weekly

"A charming pet tale...Beautiful illustrations are sure to enchant even the youngest reader. If you’re looking for a book that can be read, enjoyed, [and] chewed upon...A Carnival of Cats is sure to delight."

— January Magazine

"The illustrations are gorgeous."

— 49th Shelf blog

"Ever since we received this book, Henry has wanted to read it every night...Each page features different appearances, names, and behaviors of cats. I was surprised at how much I learned! We’ve been practicing the different types of cats, so he will be better able to identify his feline friends. I’d highly recommend this board book. It is quite fun to read, and every night, I look forward to reading it...This book will be a wonderful read aloud in an early childhood classroom. There are opportunities for comparing and contrasting, rhyming, and cross-curricular elements by talking about different breeds of cats."

— Unleashing Readers blog

"This would be a great book to pair with a non-fiction book about cat breeds."

— Resource Links

"The artwork, created with sepia ink, watercolor, and wax resist on paper, offers lovely, detailed pictures of all the felines frolicking about in carnival settings...No doubt preschoolers will enjoy learning about the various breeds of cat, but it's the whimsical illustrations that really make this one something to purr about."
