Lillian, Tilly, and William J. Set off for a fun day of eating and reading, but when they find the perfect spot, the spot some ewes. This starts a day of chasing words and rhymes, and homophones, and homonyms. Then suddenly all their words get jumbled up. How will they ever be able to finish their cat tale? I thought this book was really fun, it can really entertain a wide range of ages. Little ones will have fun with all of the rhyming and silly sequences, and early elementary students can potentially learn a lot of different language concepts as mentioned above. I loved the illustrations. They were super simple, many of em looked like they are paper cutouts stuck on a brick background. It is visually appealing as well as whimsical and just plain different. There is one point in the book that did get a little confusing, hopefully the preschoolers will be able to laugh at it, instead of think to deeply into that section.
