This adorable picture book reminds me of the movie, The Secret Life of Pets. What exactly do our cats do all day when we are at work or school? The answer might surprise you. At the beginning and the conclusion of this story, the cats are all piled together on a comfy chair. However, they get into quite a bit of trouble when their human goes away. They cook, knit, type, swim, play games, dance, paint, play chess, and dance. Whew! What a busy day they have. The cats feel very sure that they have gotten away with their mischief, but they may have forgotten to remove all traces of the day’s activities.
The cats in the story are all adorable and they come in many different colors, shapes and sizes which adds to the visual interest of this story. Kids will enjoy imagining what the human will do when they open the front door in the evening.
