Catawampus cat could also be called Contrarian cat! Adorable and hilarious and very charming illustrations!

Askew, tilted, crooked, catawampus! What a fun book to discover new words to build vocabulary AND learn how to look at the world from a different perspective. The mixed media illustrations of pictures, printed images,and drawings give more depth to the topic of askew and provides more convo for parents and kiddos to discuss while poring over the pages together.

Loved this book. Catawampus Cat comes into town but he does not walk the way, people would expect a cat to walk. He is bent over and this causes other people in the town to bend over and look at things in new ways.

Great story of how we could be open to exploring things in new ways.

As the other reviewer said, you could use this opportunity to discuss topics about how people look and how we are all different.

Cute story!

5 year old loved this book, it got him thinking and talking.
I loved it too and found it easy to open conversation with our son.
Great way to introduce concept of looking at things from a different perspective.
