A Curious Collection of Cats
Released April 2009
Reviewed by Bob Walch
In 34 visual poems, Betsy Franco captures the many moods of cats with wit and whimsy. Each short poem is melded into the vibrant, colorful, poster-like illustrations by Michael Wertz.
In "The Great Escape,” Sid the cat is sitting on his owner's head as a big Saint Bernard walks by. The lines of the poem begin on Sid's body, flow down onto his mistress, and conclude at the bottom of her dress. The graphic art makes each verse come alive and makes this a very unusual and clever collection of cat poems.
An excellent blending of verse and feline foibles, all the little cat lovers in your household will adore A CURIOUS COLLECTION OF CATS.
