Cat at Night, The

"The guessing-game nature of the story ("Where do you think the cat is walking now?") encourages interaction, and Ipcar’s trademark simple but modern illustrations have great child appeal."
— Horn Book

Cat at Night, The

The golden jubilee edition of a children’s classic first published in 1969.


Join the farmer’s cat on his fascinating nighttime journey through fields, farms, forests, and even the city to see what only he can see after the sun sets. Legendary artist Dahlov Ipcar mesmerizingly alternates between dark night scenes and vivid color to deliver a beautifully illustrated children’s classic. Each scene is shown first as a human would see it at night, and then as a cat sees it in with vivid color and fine detail. This commemorative edition features a new backmatter tribute to Dahlov’s artistry and to The Cat at Night from her biographer, poet and art critic Carl Little.
