Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Tippy Toes is a tricky cat--sneaking, hiding, creeping, slinking. Over here. Over there. His house is the perfect place to tiptoe the day away, lurking behind unsuspecting birds and mice, crouching behind garden posies, and surprising a little boy with his unusual hiding spots. Die-cut pages let readers discover where Tippy Toe goes as his day unfolds, and end up revealing the most satisfying hiding place of all--a warm cozy bed! Told with simple rhymes and mischievous illustrations by award-winning creator Betsy Lewin, this is a book to curl up with and enjoy--preferably in a nice sunny spot.

Die-cut pages.

Horn Book Review

In singsongy rhyme, Lewin describes the escapades of kitty-cat Tippy Toes. Though during the daytime, "Everyone knows where Tippy Toes goes," it's a different story after dark ("Nobody knows where Tippy Toes goes... / when the moon is full and the night wind blows"). Well-camouflaged die-cuts in the friendly watercolor illustrations effectively reinforce the story line. Copyright 2010 of The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
