Cat Tale, the newest picture book from Michael Hall (author of My Heart is Like a Zoo) tells of the delightfully strange adventure of three cats: Lillian, Tilly, and William J. Tongue-twisting wordplay leads the colorful cats from one activity to the next, following the links of homonyms (“They flee a steer… they steer a plane…”) as each increasingly silly action is illustrated in boldly graphic acrylic stamps and paper collage. Young word-lovers will cackle with delight, particularly as the words grow jumbled and the cats find themselves scrambling to illustrate nonsense until they regain control of the tail… er, tale. Here Hall has introduced a sophisticated concept-–homonyms, or words that sound the same but have different meanings–in a fun and silly way that even preschoolers will grasp and enjoy. Read Cat Tale and then have fun making up your own zany homonym adventures. See this book listed in our catalog
