That Cat… is Notable December 21, 2010

Posted by flashlightblog in Awards and Honors, Cats.

Congratulations to That Cat Can’t Stay on making Smithsonian’s 2010 Notable Books for Children. The list, publicized every year around Christmas, presents “some of the best that children’s literature has to offer” organized by age group.

That Cat Can’t Stay by Thad Krasnesky and illustrated by David Parkins is praised with the following summary:

There’s really no point in putting your foot down, when the entire household is bent on taking in just one more stray. This droll tribute to dads who are softies at heart is sure to become a family favorite.

That Cat is in great company among recommendations for all ages ranging from the much discussed wordless picture book The Chicken Thief to a re-issue of Madeleine L’Engle’s And Both Were Young. For a full listing, see the Smithsonian.com feature article here.
