The purr-fect book for art lovers and cat lovers alike. This story by award winning author-illustrator Joan Waites is endearing and the colorful illustrations are playful and captivating. Sure, children will learn art history through this tale, but more importantly, they will learn, there are many ways to create art. I can’t imagine any child (or adult for that matter) who wouldn’t be inspired to get out paper and “paint with scissors,” like Matisse after reading A Purr-fect Painting.

A great book for parents to own, this book should also be on the shelf at every school and especially in art studios and classrooms. I know it will be in mine.
