Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Mimi is an artistic cat in need of a human. But for a cat like her--with the soul of an artist--only an artist will do. Mr. Dada is a human who believes that art can be anything, and that anything can be art. And for a human like him--with the soul of a Dadaist--only an artistic pet will do. Sometimes, though, it takes a while for humans to see what's right in front of them all along. So it is a good thing that Mimi is loud and silly and surprising and bold. Mimi is a Dada cat, through and through.</p> <p>This charming story about staying true to yourself sparkles with playful prose and stunning mixed-media illustrations while introducing readers to the Dadaist art movement. Includes an author's note, a list of books and websites, and an index. </p>

Horn Book Review

Mimi, a stray cat, intends to makes her home with Mr. Dada, an artist who believes "Art...is anything!" But he isn't convinced that Mimi is the right pet for him ("Do I look like the kind of man to coo Kitty, Kitty?") until she demonstrates her Dadaist artistry by balancing a fish on her head. Mixed-media illustrations are fittingly random and whimsical. Reading list, websites. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
