Stripy enters a town and he's got some plans. Two groups of cats refuse to talk to each other: the white ones and the black ones. Through cleverness, Stripy brings them together.

This is a book with a clear message, which is presented right away. There's no need to hide what Stripy is up to, so young listeners get a heads-up on what Stripy is kind of planning before he begins. Not only that, but the young listener is complimented and made to feel closer to the story. Stripy is one clever cat and tons of fun to look at. When he approaches the two groups, neither wants to talk with him, and it's fun to see how he tricks them into becoming cool cats like him. Young listeners will know right away what Stripy is up to, and be delighted as he convinces them to do what he wants.

The illustrations are bold and draw in. The cats are portrayed with all the sweetness felines deserve, and will draw smiles from young listeners' faces. The text is placed in fun rhyme and allows the illustrations to bring the scenes to life.

The message is a common one, but it's something kids can never hear enough of. Children ages 3 and up are sure to enjoy this tale.

And here she is. . .
