From word to word they find their way, Lillian, Tilly, and William J.
Like this:
They spot some ewes.
They use a box.
They box some fleas.
And flee a steer . . .
First they see, then they do.
The only thing missing? You!
Come join the fun.
Michael Hall's inquisitive cats set out to spend the afternoon snacking and reading, but wind up chasing words, including homophones and homonyms, on a silly tongue twister of an adventure!

Cat Tale told by Michael Hall #bookreview #childrensbooks @HarperChildrens

This book is fabulous! It is school shelf worthy. 🙂 With illustrations that are similar in method to Eric Carle this book is vibrant and full of color and while it is attractive, the absolute best part is the text. The story is fun, but it is the word play. The jump between appearance, sound and meaning keeps you guessing and brings on the intriguing. I love it an I will have to get a real copy, this is one I know I plan to use again and again for our grammar/language arts type lessons. I’m completely excited about this one and recommend it to all!
