Black Cat, White Cat
by Silvia Borando
Age Range: Under_5
This is the story of two cats: a male black cat and a female white cat. Black cat only goes out during the day and asks his friend Blackbird what things can be seen at night; while White cat only ventures out at night time and asks her friend Snowy Owl, what things can be seen during daylight. Blackbird and Owl advise them to find the answers for themselves. Predictably, when both cats go out to explore they meet and begin to develop a friendship as they show each other the things they love. Look out for the lovely surprise on the last page!
Italian author/illustrator Silvia Borando has created a charming picture book that cleverly promotes friendship and inclusion. The predominately black and white illustrations use a clever design with alternate black and white pages, reversed images and minimal line drawing that help to show the genuine affinity between the two cats. A book that will most surely appeal to young children and cat lovers.
