This charming origin story is enlivened with colorful and luminous pictures of an ancient China and the gorgeous cats that attended on one selfish ruler. Children will adore the story of how “Chinese” cats somehow turned into Siamese felines as they pore over the lovely pictures. Never underestimate the power of writing, especially at the hands—or paws—of an intrepid kitty.
