They All Saw a Cat by Brendan Wenzel
It’s all about perception in this picture book about a cat who “walked through the world, with its whiskers, ears and paws…” The cat is seen by a child, a fish, a dog and more. Each creature views the cat through different eyes, whether it be blurry, big cat eyes for the fish, or a beast with long claws and sharp teeth by the mouse. A bird views the cat from above, and a flea sees the cat as it nestles in its fur. While the text is simple and repetitive, the varying perspectives of the illustrations tell the multi-faceted story of how one cat can be seen by so many in so many different ways! With many wide, full-page spreads, this one would be fun to read with a child and talk about how and why each creature sees the cat so differently.
