    1. Joan Nodset's 1973 story about a little girl who tries to befriend a stray cat is introduced to a new generation via Steven Kellogg's yellow- and orange-soaked illustrations. The round-eyed characters, textured backgrounds, and large format will entice beginning readers, who will delight in being able to handle the rudimentary text on their own. This should become a popular title in elementary libraries.

    2. This book is hysterically funny. It had both of my kids (age 2 1/2 and 4 1/2) laughing so hard that no sound was coming out. Come Back, Cat offers up the most accurate depiction I have ever seen of what it is like to pair a young child with a cat.each party showing affection in a way that borders on abuse but comes from a good and loving place. The illustrations are fabulous, especially the attention paid to facial expressions, and the narrative spare. It begs to be read aloud and with enthusias [...]

    3. Such a cute book! Children love to chase and cuddle with their animals just like the little girl in this story did! The pictures add to the excitement and the book and there is just enough writing on each page to keep the reader engaged. I was turning the pages so quick to see what would happen next, imagining that a young child would be doing the same! This book could also be related to and could be used to ask questions regarding sequence and cause and effect. A fun book to read from and learn [...]

    4. Nathan (20 months) and I have read this one over and over now. It is a simple story of a young girl who learns that quiet stillness is the best way to make friends with a cat. The illustrations by Steven Kellogg are charming. Nathan is now petting the cat in the pictures. I can't say this has helped any in his relationship with my cats, however. Good Reads linkCheck it out.

    5. The artwork is wonderful--the leaves are just right, and will make this especially nice for fall. Better still, they perfectly compliment the text--you can see the emotion both in the little girl and the cat. Both characters are well drawn--not just in terms of art, but in their emotions and reactions. A truly winning tale and a nice change from all those doggie books!

    6. Our family loves this book. My one year old keeps asking me to read this book again and again. It seems just the way a child would play with a cat. A little of patience and being gentle a pet will return the love back. The pictures go along with the story and emotions. They are beautiful too.

    7. This book will always hold a special place in my heart because it's the first time I saw my little guy point with his finger and do one-to-one correspondence to read the title Come Back, Cat. He giggled throughout this book. It's a great book to discuss feelings. I highly recommend it.

    8. I like this one for a couple of reasons: the number of / k / sounds and for putting into words how the cat might be feeling based on the way the child handles or treats him. And I like the illustrations too! Position of word: Initial - 33 times; Medial - 7 times and Final - 5 times

    9. I liked the part where the cat got to come back two times. And I liked when she pet the cat. The cat looks like Darwin, my kitty.

    10. This story includes adorable illustrations and a sweet story. It is useful for teaching children how to treat animals gently.

    11. An older book, reissued with new illustrations, this book serves as a reminder to children to treat pets gently.
