I Like Cats
by Anushka Ravishankar
Age Range: Under_5
This is an irresistible gallery of feline characters from sunny cats, fat cats, sad cats, grinning cats, brat cats, and cats with scowls and cats with jowls. In fact every kind of cat imaginable is featured here in this hand bound and silk screened book from some of the best-known tribal and folk artists of India.
The simple caption text from Indian writer Anushka Ravishankar perfectly accompanies this array of stunningly beautifully illustrations with their rich deep colour that helps to define these majestic creatures. As well as being a sumptuous picture book that is sure to delight cat lovers, art lovers and even artsy cat lovers, it is also an ideal book to use in the classroom to talk about art, specifically folk art from India. The fact that the book has been handmade can also be a useful discussion point too.
