They All Saw a Cat

by Brendan Wenzel

2017 Caldecott Honor
Each creature encountering a cat sees something different, making the reader wonder: is this a story about a cat, or is it about the animals that see it? Full-color illustrations rendered “in almost everything imaginable, including colored pencil, oil pastels, acrylic paint, watercolor, charcoal, Magic Marker,” pencil, and digitally.
