Elisha Cooper’s books are always a joy. His use of line is simple and elegant; here,
a white cat welcomes a small black cat to the home and teaches it “when to eat,
when to drink, where to go, how to be.”
They live together, play together, and the black cat becomes older and
larger as the white cat then begins to age.
Then one day the white cat went away.
“And that was hard. For everyone.” Big
Cat, Little Cat is a lovely book for young pet lovers.
