The Unexpected Adventures of C.A.T. by Johanna Hurwitz
Illustrator: Sam Loman
Fourth-grader Chaya Ann Tober loves cats. Even her initials, C.A.T., are perfect for her!
She feels so cat-like herself that when her actual cat Ollie, a very picky eater, refuses to eat a mysterious new kind of cat food, she tries to encourage him by tasting a tiny bit of it herself (and finds it, surprisingly, not awful.) That night Chaya has the craziest dream–she dreams she really has become a cat, one with orange fur, the exact color of her own hair.
Or is it a dream?
Join in the adventures as C.A.T. and her annoying older brother Daniel use some magical food to become cats, prowl their neighborhood at night, prevent a cat-astrophe, and see each other in a whole new light.
A purr-fect chapter book for middle grade readers (ages 8-12) who like animals and fantasy adventure, even if they are pickier eaters than C.A.T.
