Curious Demise of a Contrary Cat

Author(s): Lynne Berry

Picture Books

"Cat!" said Witch. "Fetch me a hat!" But Cat was busy, chasing Rat. "Cat?" said Witch. "Purr?" said Cat. "Hat!" said Witch. "Grrrr!" said Cat. And that was the end of that. (Witch got her own hat. "Drat that cat!")...It's a pale grey night with a bright full moon, and Witch is throwing a party. But far from helping her get ready, Cat is being downright contrary. Every request Witch makes is ignored, so she must do it all herself. Eventually, though, she gets fed up...and that is the end of that dratted Cat. With brilliantly snappy rhyming dialogue, unique engraving-style black-and-white illustrations and a hilarious punch line featuring a delightfully dastardly demise for this most contrary cat, this is the book for Halloween. Share this with your children, and they'll never talk back again!
