Bathtime has Cat quite literally bent out of shape in this fresh, funny concept book that’s purr-fect for the preschool set.

It’s bathtime for Cat, but Cat is nowhere to be found. That is, until you look closely. Young readers will delight in following housemates Kitty and Puppy (and a few buzzing flies) on an excitable pursuit—with hilarious results! Author-illustrator Mirka Hokkanen brings her original talent for sight gags to this stylish tale of trapezoids and triangles, circles and squares (and several more shapes besides), all hidden in plain sight. Readers of all ages will be given over to giggles as they discover Cat’s many contortions.
Mirka Hokkanen is the author-illustrator of the companion book Kitty and Cat: Opposites Attract as well as the early-reader graphic novel series Mossy and Tweed and the illustrator of Four Otters Toboggan: An Animal Counting Book by Vivian Kirkfield. Mirka Hokkanen was born in Finland and began her career as a fine art printmaker before transitioning to picture book illustration. She has lived around the world and loves to knit, sew, and explore the outdoors with her three energetic kids.
