Review #1444 The Cinder-eyed Cats by Eric Rohmann
The Cinder-eyed Cats by Eric Rohmann
Rating: three stars (out of four)
The illustrations were wondrous and imaginative. I especially loved the constrast of the sea creatures swimming in the sky and the five cats dancing on the beach. It was cool seeing the little boy sail across the sky and land at a whimsical island with strange sights. The pictures completely brought the story to life, they were so vivid and descriptive. It's a fun book to read and offers a wide-range of niches to pull children into its story: oceans, felines, imagination, sailing, and sea creatures. I'd recommend.
