The Emperor's Cat
by Lloyd Alexander
illustrated by D. Brent Burkett
Reviewed January 2, 2006.
Available at Sembach Library (JF ALE).
This book is presented in picture book format, but the stories are longer and suitable for older readers than the usual picture book crowd.
We have five stories telling how the cat Dream-of-Jade became the emperor’s best friend, and how through her wisdom and cleverness she advised the king better than any of his other officials. Dream-of-Jade usually presents a twist on an idea that the reader wouldn’t think of. The stories culminate with Dream-of-Jade replacing the pompous Chief Minister.
entertaining, fun, and beautifully illustrated. They’d
make good story-telling stories for upper
elementary school kids.
