Beautifully illustrated by Jackie Morris (who we learned about from CAN YOU SEE A BEAR) with classic nursery rhymes, along with not-so-well-known ones. For me this book is a treasure. I could pore over a book of Jackie Morris's illustrations all day, and "The Cat and the Fiddle" provides many hours of attentive study. Her artwork is surreal in many ways (she's fond of inexplicably large animals) but never creepy - just dreamlike and whimsical.

A cat sleeps, curled up in a warm place, and while it sleeps it dreams. The author/illustrator is Jackie Morris, with whom I'm not familiar. The illustrations fill the page with color, up close, and with those dreaming words by the domestic cat. For instance, on a doub I found this at the bookstore at my reading conference, and the gorgeous cover caught my eye.

Jackie Morris (author). An unique celebration of the cat in a beautifully illustrated book. With simple yet beautiful text, this book is perfect for cat-lovers and art-lovers alike

Jackie Morris (author). With simple yet beautiful text, this book is perfect for cat-lovers and art-lovers alike. Jackie Morris' distinctive artwork brings these multiple cat personalities to life in the way that only she can. The sweeping, lyrical text adds even more movement to the pictures and draws the reader into the cat's sweet reverie. A bewitching book and a must for cat loving children.

Morris’ beautiful watercolors are clearly the major draw. Starting with a marmalade house cat and moving through a series of nine wild felines, each double-page spread shows a different kind of cat. Individuals, pairs and parent-child combinations appear in a variety of geographic settings. The central premise, that each scene is a dream of the sleeping house cat, feels a smidge predictable, while the repetitive start to each section of text, I dream. begins to pall after the first few pages.

I Am Cat. by Jackie Morris. A cat sleeps, curled up in a warm place, and while it sleeps it dreams. of being a tiger, flame cat of the forest; a cheetah - fast as the wind on the African plains; a lion, lounging through the heat of the day, tangled in sunshine on the African savannah; a jaguar, perfectly camouflaged deep in the jungle. And the cat dreams of being a lynx, a puma, a snow leopard, a Scottish wild cat, an Asian fishing cat, and the rare Amur leopard.

I now have several of her books that I am holding for when my great-nephew is a bit older. The stories are well geared to toddlers, but it is the art work that makes her books so fantastic. Beautiful in every way.

You do not need words when Jackie Morris
Illustrates or writes. Just what does your cat think?

As ever, Jackie Morris has created a picture book so beautiful it's almost wasted on children. Just as her other picture books are devoted to a particular type of animal (The Ice Bear,The Snow Leopard) this one concentrates on cats.

A tabby cat curls up for a sleep and invites the reader to take a glimpse into its subconscious, where it dreams of all the big cats that roam the wilds. Jackie Morris uses vibrant watercolours to capture the world through a cat's eyes, depicting everything from tigers to pumas, lions to jaguars, cheetahs to leopards.

There is an innovative feature to the prose, and that's in describing the wild cats without naming them. This makes for a good game to play with children, who may well recognize the pictures and match them up with the descriptions given - such as "the sharp-eyed running cat, fast as the wind over the bleached plains of Africa" or "the bright flame-cat of the forest, striped like the shadows."

Morris paints them all with a sense of remoteness (capturing their wild nature) but also a certain degree of personality, as well as their diverse habitats of plains, jungles or mountains. And though they're not the focus of the book, there are plenty of other animals to identify as well - birds, rabbits and other creatures that dwell on the edges of each cat's territory.

It's a beautiful book for children and cat-lovers alike, with illustrations that are engaging and informative, and a final two-page spread that provides added information on each member of the feline family that appears throughout its pages. It would makes a great gift for any young animal lover, as does all of Morris's work.

More than any other animal, cats have always featured largely in children's literature. They've appeared in every genre, from board books to poetry to YA fantasy novels. Now author and illustrator Jackie Morris adds another gem to the literary treasure chest, giving us a book that is sure to be a hit with cat lovers of every age.

Here is the story, or dreamscape, of a domestic ginger cat, who curls up to sleep on a multicoloured cushion by the fire. In her dreams she becomes other cats: big, wild, fearless felines, roaming vast landscapes around the world. In the twitch of a closed eye she turns from jaguar to snow leopard to Scottish wildcat, and she takes us with her on a journey of cat discovery and appreciation.

Morris' text is lyrical and begs to be read out aloud. Her artwork is vibrant and gentle at the same time. This is an artist who loves and knows cats well. Every cat in the book has her own personality. The habitats form luscious backdrops. You want to linger on every page. But of course, this book isn't just about cats. It's about dreamers of every size and species, and about the creative power of dreams.

A double page spread at the end of the book gives us more information about the felines featured. This is the perfect Christmas gift for cat lovers anywhere. Miaow!
gave it as a gift. My sweet heart likes books on Cats so the art work on the book cover looked interesting.
