Description

Cats are out for a night on the town in this lively picture book about counting, dance, and music from Carline Stutson and Caldecott medalist Jon Klassen.

From two cats waltzing to twenty cats in a conga line, dancing felines take to the streets, the fire escapes, and the rooftops in this charming concept picture book that is part counting and part introduction to music, dance, and rhythm. The short rhyming text makes it a perfect read-aloud treat, and with vivid illustrations from a breakout DreamWorks animator, readers and listeners alike will be thrilled to see what happens one night on Easy Street when a pair of cats start to groove to the beat.

Editorial Reviews

"...Klassen’s retro-looking illustrations of a posse of cool cats, in pale pink tuxedos and poodle skirts, are fun to look at. Lights dimly glow in the background from elegant French casements and alley tenements alike, as though the black, white and gray cats had the free run of the city."--New York Times, August 15th 2010


"the detailed cityscapes, hidden numbers, and appealing big-city cats will give little ones plenty to explore."—Booklist


“Klassen’s eye-catching digitally rendered urban streetscapes resemble the sets of classic musical theater…The subtle charms of this lighter-than-air confection should delight young connoisseurs of dance and style. —School Library Journal


"a comely counting book."—Kirkus
