It's not just another retelling of an old story. I can tell that the author asked the same question (Why cats chase mice?) to herself and her parents as she grew up, and obviously she liked and accepted the answer from the old tale. So did I. Reading this book, I sensed that the tale was well digested in herself over the years to the point she could tell it comfortably with her own wording and vivid imagination. She now tells and illustrates the story as if she does so to her own child. I love that. I recommend this book to all parents with small children, for it is not only a fun, colorful book but also offers the answer to one of "why?" questions that your children throw at you.

My little girl does! It's like the Japanese version of Tom and Jerry; the animals' antics crack her up. This copy is already getting dog-eared (no pun intended). I hope there will be more to this series. Maybe one that explains why dogs chase their tails.
