I have a small collection of unusual cat books, and decided that maybe it was time to dust some off and share them with you! In the first installment of Catsparella's Bookshelf, we have "Busy Day," a hardcover children's picture book by Suzanne Green, published in 1987. The 28-page book documents a day in the life of a trio of precious little kittens, and their disciplinarian mother.
Our story begins with sister kitty sewing herself an apron while said mother is out running some errands.
Things start to go awry when mama cat returns, and sees that the wee kits have made a big mess while she was out.
She sets them off on a series of tasks, including sweeping floors -
And washing windows!
After lunch and chores are complete, she gives the kittens permission to play!
It's been a busy day indeed, and Mother reads them a story before tucking them in for the night.
It's important to point out that no animals were harmed in the creation of the book, and the introducton also contains an interesting Note to Grown-Ups that both reassures and warns readers that the "Pelorian Cats" seen in "Busy Day" are no ordinary kitties.
In other words, don't try this at home!
