This nearly wordless book uses onomatopoeia and strikingly bold illustrations to tell the story of a homeless cat who finally finds a home.

A cat enters a grocery store in search of food, but the proprietor shoos her away. A bus approaches offering shelter, but the large-handed, angry-faced bus driver shouts SCRAM! When another bus approaches, the cat runs in with a WHOOSH and meets a grandfatherly gentleman who changes the cat's circumstances forever.

Praise For…

"First-time author-illustrator Kim combines pastels and colored pencils digitally to create clean, spare illustrations. . . . The simple story comes to a very happy ending, with the clever closing endpapers showing human footprints alongside the paw prints."—Horn Book Magazine

"This sweet, nearly wordless tale is likely to find an appreciative audience among cat lovers and children just beginning to sound words out on their own."—Kirkus Reviews

"Kim makes a solid debut with this story of an endearingly dogged feline . . . the pictures do the heavy lifting, and Kim— who works in generously scaled, clearly delineated shapes— creates a sense of momentum through imaginative framing"—Publishers Weekly
