Horn Book Review

When a cat reaches into a fishbowl, its occupant flaps its fins and flies into the air and straight out the window. The ensuing chase finds the red-and-white fish--a rare spot of color in the predominantly black-and-white art--hiding in a tree, zooming around in space, etc. This unpredictable tale may be wordless, but the characters' expressions are so telling that nothing goes unsaid.
