Once there was a time when cats had no fur and no whiskers. They wrapped their bald bodies in blankets to keep warm. The King of the Cats summoned his most trusted advisors to send them out into the world to find out what other animals are doing to keep warm. This is the story of how cats acquired their beautiful fur coats.
"This story is a very imaginative and entertaining story that any child would love to read over and over. The illustrations are captivating as well."
“Once again Harris Tobias has come up with a fun fantasy for young children. With great illustrations by Evalena Jonsson Lunde, the book explains how the once naked and shivering cold cats went about selecting their wonderful coats. This is a fun fantasy book that children will relish. ”
"This book is a very clever and creative story that children and parents will enjoy reading again and again. The illustrations are very well done. We look forward to more from Harris Tobias."
