Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—A look at the ennui experienced by a sardonic housecat. First there were Penguin Problems, then Giraffe Problems, and now the domestic cat is getting its chance. This plot-free stream of kitty consciousness follows the trials and tribulations of a well-tended house cat as it tries to fill its day #catproblems. A sampling of the problems the cat encounters include a disappearing sunbeam, a nearly empty food bowl, the other cat innocently sleeping in all the "best" places ("I think that cat might be my greatest enemy in the entire house."), the monster/vacuum cleaner, boredom, lack of ability to let themselves out, and a sassy squirrel on the other side of the window. (Post-Covid -19 lockdown some of these problems may hit a little close to the home.) Each problem elicits a sardonic, first-person response often directed at readers. After being schooled by a squirrel as to how good they have it being cared for inside, the cat responds with, "How can I eat this very talkative squirrel?" Smith's texture-filled illustrations are as expected in the best possible way. His combination of panels, and single- and double-page spreads put the cat with all the expression-filled, big-eyed attitude front and center. Ranging in size, location, and font, the text works perfectly with the illustrations. VERDICT As story flows from one problem to the next, readers will want to let cat out for just a little bit—or maybe revisit the first two books for more problems.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Lib., Troy, NH

"Prolific children's book author and illustrator Jory John and Lane Smith team up in this hilarious picture book that follows the day in the life of a bored house cat. Whether he's staring at the wall, investigating boxes, demanding food, or harassing his fellow cat friend, this house cat manages to be constantly dissatisfied with his life. Even when a squirrel gives him a rundown on all the ways the cat has it easy compared to its own life, the cat refuses to be moved. This picture book got lots of big laughs out of my cat-loving toddler." —Book Riot

"Great fun, even—or especially?—if you don't have a cat." —Booklist, starred review

"The star of the third entry in the collaborators' Animal Problems series is a sarcastic, malcontent cat narrator who is unrepentant right out of the gate. Readers can't help but laugh—and perhaps even identify with an id unabashedly unleashed. —Publisher's Weekly 

"Fun; kids should lap this up fur storytime." —Kirkus

"Is there any problem more important than a cat problem? Not to the cat in Jory John's puckish ode to a finicky, fickle, ever-dissatisfied feline. The visual jokes from Lane Smith begin on the cover (with lettering shredded a la cat) and continue throughout this day-in-the-life look at perching on furniture, tasty treats ... and longing to munch on a squirrel just outside the window ..." —The Virginian Pilot
 
"What's the problem for a cat who spends all day lounging? This one can name quite a few, in this funny follow-up to Penguin Problems and Giraffe Problems. —TODAY

"Cat lovers will fully appreciate this hilarious tale from Jory John. With perfectly textured illustrations from Lane Smith, this fun book follows the completely difficult life of a house cat as he navigates his day." —Tiny Beans
