Allusion is not Illusion

You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

Elemenopeo - Harriet Ziefert, Donald Saaf What a cute and fun book! Elemenopeo is such a positive cat, getting so much enjoyment out of his daily routine of meals, napping, playing, and visits with other animals. And when his schedule is interrupted ("Cat Door Closed for Repairs") he quickly finds entertainment inside -- by painting a self-portrait!

The simple but charming text is great for reading aloud or for a beginning reader, and the bright paintings are perfect.
