See the Cat: Three Stories About a Dog
Illustrator: Mike Wohnoutka
See Max. Max is not a cat—Max is a dog. But much to Max’s dismay, the book keeps instructing readers to "see the cat." How can Max get through to the book that he is a DOG?
In a trio of stories for beginning readers, author David LaRochelle introduces the excitable Max, who lets the book know in irresistibly emphatic dialogue that the text is not to his liking. Illustrator Mike Wohnoutka hilariously depicts the pup’s reactions to the narrator and to the wacky cast of characters who upend Max’s—and readers’—expectations as the three stories build to an immensely satisfying conclusion. Hooray, Max, hooray!
Full-color illustrations were done in gouache.
