Green Cat

Written by: Dayal Kaur Khalsa

First line: Tom and Lynn shared a room.

Why you should read this book: A rhyming reimagining of an old folktale, this book present a pair of squabbling siblings who feel their bedroom is too small. A large, anthropomorphic green cat appears and solves the problem by filling their room with a variety of items until the kids feel really cramped, and then removes the objects until the room seems cavernous by comparison. In fact, now it's too big.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You have read this story in other, more traditional forms, and found it less delightful with every reading.
