Cleo is an orange-striped cat, hungry and all alone in the world, but determined to change her solitary status. So, after a wink and a yawn and a stretch, Cleo sets out to find a home. Lucky cat! She finds one on her first try. But will the residents of the house take to her as well as she does to their bowls of milk and concealing knitting baskets? Readers will be satisfied to see that she comes full circle from her first awakening in the morning: "Cleo licks her paws. / Cleo takes a leap. / Cleo starts to purr. / Cleo falls asleep." This time, however, she's found a lap to nap on.
With Stella Blackstone's simple rhymes and Caroline Mockford's lush, color-soaked pictures, this appealing little board book makes a sweetly reassuring story for the youngest readers.
