Clyde Doesn't Go Outside
Upper Hand Press Llc
The elegant, computer-generated drawings are based on the author's long-time close observation of his own cats in postures of alertness, curiosity, and laziness: Cat lovers always see their own cats in these images.
Snyder's color palette makes this a perfect lap book and bedtime book for small children. The droll limerick text and the many images waiting to be discovered make it a story-time hit. The author-illustrator's multi-layered, dream-like illustrations fascinate lovers of graphic novels and fine design.
Readers looking for the best in bedtime fiction, animal fiction, cat fiction, and graphic novels will all want to have Clyde Doesn't Go Outside.
