Description

Ruby can't understand why her cat, Mattoo, never wants to play. Ruby is good-natured but is perhaps too boisterous. Will Mattoo ever want to play with Ruby? Will Ruby ever win Mattoo's affection? With striking acrylic illustrations, Mattoo, Let's Play! is a visually rich story that shows how playing carefully and gently with a pet can make all the difference.

Mattoo, Let’s Play!

Is Mattoo really shy or is Ruby just a little too boisterous? As Ruby and her friend Clemente embark on a safari in the wilds of Ruby’s bedroom, Ruby learns that perhaps she just needs to approach animals and Mattoo in a calmer and gentler manner. This is Irene Luxbacher’s author-illustrator debut picture book.
