Overview

Rupert has a big secret. When his owner, Mandy, is fast asleep, he likes to slip on her dancing shoes and dance the night away. Then one night Mandy catches Rupert in the act. She's not upset; she's thrilled! And she's determined to give Rupert dancing lessons so he can hone his talent. Rupert is horrified. Lessons are for dogs. Cats like to do things their own way. Dismayed, he loses all interest in dancing and goes into hiding. But Mandy comes up with the perfect plan to get Rupert dancing again . . . Michael di Capua Books

Reviews

. . . Feiffer is at his best with the absurdly comic, and some of that is on display here as the lanky Rupert dances his little feline heart out. - BCCB This warmly humorous book may resonate most with those familiar with the love of dance or the delicate dignity of cats, but the story of friendship and shared passion at its heart will appeal to any reader. - The Horn Book * Feiffer has created a compelling, yet concise, sequential narrative that shows the importance of imagination and being flexible . . . A first purchase for cat fans and free spirits everywhere. - School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW Feiffer's familiar, sketchy Magic Marker artwork is especially rough here, compounding the story's already childlike sense of whimsy. The straightforward storytelling, built upon a strong sense of feline behaviors and attitudes, will appeal especially to cat aficionados. - Booklist The free-form illustrations, done in bright strokes of black, ginger, pinks and greens, swirl gracefully about the pages and pop off the white background . . . A happy romp for terpischorean cat lovers. - Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW: Feiffer is at his best drawing the two flying through the air in a cat-and-human pas de deux: it's a quintessentially Feifferian moment. - Publishers Weekly
