Comments for One Moon, Two Cats

One Moon, Two Cats: 08/05/12

Link goes to PowellsOne Moon, Two Cats by Laura Godwin is about two cats living very different lives but having similar adventures under the light of a full moon.

Thematically the book is akin to the Country Mouse, City Mouse parable. Here too there's a country cat and a city cat. But they don't meet and they don't comment on each other's lifestyle. Instead, the country and the city provide landscapes for their nocturnal explorations.

The one moon provides a point of similarity from which Godwin, paired with Yoko Tanaka's illustrations, begin to find other ways in which these two cats are similar.

The text has a nice, limited vocabulary, good for beginning readers. The eye catching, full page illustrations are good for group story time.

Four stars

I just loved the centre page when we see that the two cats live relatively close to each other!
