Three singing cats go from the back alley to super stardom in this companion to Cats Got Talent, from the bestselling illustrator of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Raves and Reviews

Hal, Dora, and Geneva are three cats who love singing loudly together in the back alley. However, not everyone loves their singing. When the devious Lekvar Smirk captures the three kitties and rigs the Animal Idol competition to make them win, he thinks he’s made his fortune. But Hal, Dora, and Geneva have their own ideas and leave Lekvar in the dust. Dora opens a fashion boutique, Hal opens a diner, and Geneva stars in movies. While they enjoy these things, they realize that they were happiest when they were singing together. Cats Get Famous is an entertaining tale about doing what you love most with the people you love most regardless of whether or not you will be recognized for it. The humor is smart, the cartoon illustrations are appealing, and the story is fun. VERDICT This is an enjoyable read-aloud and a solid purchase for most collections.–Paige Garrison, Aurora Central Public Library, CO
