About this Book:

Join the farmer's cat on his fascinating nighttime journey through fields, farms, forests and even the city to see what only he can see after the sun sets. Legendary artist Dahlov Ipcar mesmerizingly alternates between dark night scenes and vivid color to deliver a beautifully illustrated children's classic.
The Cat at Night

"This is an underappreciated classic. It follows a cat on his nightly journey through a farm and the surrounding area, all the while comparing what humans see to what a cat sees. Artwork is always important to me - I grew up wanting to be a children's book illustrator - and this has some of the boldest pictures of any picture book. The drawings, like Matisse cutouts, show what a human sees (black silhouettes against gunmetal blue skies) and then what a cat sees (pinks and greens and yellows). Kids feel close to animals - there's a natural kinship - so seeing the world through a cat's eyes has a certain primal appeal."
– Dave Eggers, award-winning author (What is the What, Zeitoun), editor, journalist, publisher and screenwriter
