Learning to read is hard... especially if you are a cat. Journey with Nick as he determines what his cats are interested in reading, visits his local library, has lots of adventures, and finally teaches his cats how to read. Beautiful book about a persistent boy and the cats he loves.

Verne, Nick's cat, is enthusiastic about reading words and the captivating world of story. This cat even gets his own library card (and borrows so many books)!! Stevenson, Verne's other cat, isn't quite taken by the written word. When Nick discovers Stevenson's drawings and becomes aware of his cat's fascination with pirates, Nick learns that Stevenson just wasn't being presented with stories that sparked his interest. A delightful read-aloud for emergent readers, and book lovers of all ages. Berube's art is absolutely charming!

This book is extremely adorable and a little unexpected. With charming characters, both people and cats, you'll find much to enjoy in this book about reading, finding your own groove, and being a good friend.

As a cat lover, this book is adorable. Stevenson is the grumpy cat that will stick in your heart forever! It's a marvellous story of how even the most disinterested can find a love of reading if you just ask "What are you interested in?"
