In the classic nursery rhyme “Pussycat, Pussycat,” Pussycat travels to London to visit the Queen. But where else does Pussycat go? These vivid, dreamy poems and illustrations reveal the rest of Pussycat’s adventures. The trip takes readers to far-flung, magical places of the world and also deeper into Pussycat’s heart, as they learn what he wishes for, what soothes his sorrow, where he hides when he is scared, and what happens when he gets lost.
In the most recent issue of Quill & Quire, Chelsea Donaldson wrote, “It’s hard to decide which is more impressive: Rae Maté’s stunning paintings or Dan Bar-el’s exhilarating adaptation of the traditional Mother Goose rhyme. What is certain is that together they manage to breathe new life into a very old poem…. The result is a tour de force that is sure to become a classic.”
