Horn Book Review

Where do cats go at night?" wonders young Marie Elaine, so one night she tags along with her kitty. After eluding some dogs, they meet the Queen of the Cats and party all night. Unfortunately, that's all that happens, making for an anticlimactic tale. Nevertheless, it's a pleasant journey, and Burningham's unmistakable art--loose, exuberant, and inviting--carries the story.
