Posy. Linda Newbery. Illustrated by Catherine Rayner. 2008. Simon & Schuster. 32 pages.
She's a...
whiskers wiper,
crayon swiper.
Playful wrangler,
knitting tangler.
Spider catcher,
sofa scratcher.
Posy is a kitten. She's a cute, playful, mischievous, kitten. The text is simple, playful, descriptive. Only a few words per page. The illustrations by Catherine Rayner are the focus of this one. They do a great job in conveying Posy's personality. My favorite descriptions were ice-cream guzzler and sandwich checker.
