Aye Aye, Captain Cat

“Captain Cat loved cats. There were more cats on board his ship, the Carlotta, than there were sailors in his crew — which was why his sailors called him Captain Cat.”

“‘Hooray!’ cried the Queen of the island when she saw she had a visitor.”

It’s a quick art stop today with two spreads here from Inga Moore’s Captain Cat, released last month from Candlewick.

I reviewed this one over at BookPage. That link is here.

Today, I just wanted to share a bit of art as a follow-up to the review. I enjoy Moore’s picture books.

Until Thursday …

  1. This looks like one cat-obsessed Maxwell would enjoy. It’s not in our system yet, but I’ll keep an eye out for it.

  2. Cats and a plucky queen? Clearly that book needs to come to my house soon.

  3. These illustrations look stunning! 🙂 And they depict a very lovable, down-to-earth queen of the island 😀
