Book’s synopsis:
Nat has a talent for sleeping all day long. Name any place in the house, and Nat can sleep in, on, under or sprawled over it. In fact, Nat is so devoted to slumber that the imaginative antics of a crazy kitten don’t seem to bother him one bit, until…

When the nighttime quiet falls, when strange shadows fill the halls…

Now Nat is all fired up and ready to go! Will the kitten be able to keep up, or is it time for her to find the perfect place to settle down for a wee nap? 

Our thoughts:
This book was a lot of fun to read with its rhythmic verses and playful language. It follows a day in the life of Nat the Cat who loves to sleep in the day no matter what is happening around him. But when night falls, Nat comes alive! We have a cat so we can relate to Nat’s behavior. AND my kids are the same too! They come alive at night when it’s time for bedtime.

I read this with my son and we liked the relationship between the kitten and Nat the Cat. So adorable! And the turn of phrases are delightful: 

When the house is wrapped in dreams,
When stars wink and moonlight gleams…

The pencil crayon illustrations with the frolicsome scenes are perfect for this age group. With engaging words and lively pictures, this book will greatly appeal to cat lovers of all ages.

Note: This book is rated C = clean read.
