Colin the cat doesn't have a bed. Actually, Colin doesn't have a home. This is A-OK for most of the time as he is far too busy scampering, licking, balancing and looking cute. However, it is NOT ok when he is terribly tired and grouchy and in desperate need of a big, dozy catnap.

When Colin spies a cardboard box that looks dull but perfect for catching forty cat-winks in, he gets more than he bargained for as he is parceled up and posted around the world and beyond to a whole host of peculiar characters, who do not in fact want a cat . . . until Colin lands on just the right doorstep . . .

What I love about Leigh Hodgkinson: Her sweet, sly, and quirky sense of humor. Her mad typography skills. Her ability to use just enough words to tell a story. In this case, the story of Boris the cat. He's soooo sleepy, and finds the perfect place for a nap… until the box gets shipped around the world to all kinds of folks who do NOT want a cat. Will Boris ever find that perfect snoozing spot? (Spoiler: yes, because children's picture book.)

The art is collage and cartoons, wildly eccentric and lots of fun. It's one of our favorite children's books about cats, and possibly one of my personal faves of all children's picture books.

The second Boris book, Boris and the Wrong Shadow, is almost as good. High bar to clear and all that.
