Stack the Cats by Susie Ghahremani

My author debut releases May 2 to advance acclaim:

  • “This is a book that can expand children’s thought processes.” – Kirkus **STARRED REVIEW**
  • As fun as it is clever, Ghahremani’s cat-infested concept book is a treat.” – Booklist **STARRED REVIEW**
  • “Crisp, bold illustrations to introduce simple math concepts that go beyond the usual counting fare for the very young… A simple yet clever lesson that there’s more than one way to stack some cats. Ideal for one-on-one and small group sharing.” – School Library Journal
  • impossibly adorable…a book that’s ideal for children (or adults) obsessed with the cuddly cuteness of the Neko Atsume app. The cats all but beg to be named by readers, who will flip back through this sublimely silly outing to choose their favorites.” – Publisher’s Weekly
  • “The minimalist text combined with the slick, playful illustrations makes this a sure bet for a lively readaloud—though listeners should probably be warned that stacking may not go over well with actual cats.” – Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
