About the Book

The joys of giving and receiving are celebrated in this easy-to-read story about a cat who seeks shelter on a snowy day.
Shivering, Cat jumps into the basement window of a small apartment building. As Cat makes his way up to a top-floor garret, Dog gives Cat a book, Rabbit gives him a plant, Bird gives him a painting, and Elephant gives him a hot drink. Cat is happy! Everyone is happy!

Cutaway views of the building with each character cozy in his apartment and constructively occupied—reading, painting, tending plants, and playing a piano—will fascinate new readers.
