The tiny kitten sat alone in a window with a small sign that read "Looking for home. Will work for food." Finally, a nice couple gently picked her up and took her to live with them in their New York City apartment/photographer's studio. And, indeed, work for food she has. Happy Birthday, the Cat is a charming collection of illustrated tales by Birthday the cat. She tells about her adoption on her new owner's birthday, her trips to Central Park and Vermont, and her many photo shoots with other animals, such as parrots, ducks, and turtles. Throughout her stories of high adventure, the authors (and Birthday's owners), Don and Noriko Carroll, have lavishly illustrated the book with photos of their beloved cat. The combination makes for a compelling tale as told from the feline point of view. In picture after picture - Birthday drenched with water during her first bath, Birthday running from a mischievous parrot, Birthday with her beloved rolly ball held firmly in her mouth - the little cat entertains and delights with her sweet expressions and precious narrative. It's a book that's guaranteed to be a best-seller with cat lovers everywhere.

I not only thought that the photos were brillant but the writing was completely engaging. I had the fortunate experience of meeting these wonderful people who wrote this book and I actually know characters whom they wrote about and I must say that when I reread the book tonight I laughed and cried because they depicked the characters as they were exactly including ,the cat and turtlesand the bird.I am sending an e-mail out to all my friends to buy this book for their children for all times.

I loved this little book...what a find! I liked it so much that I'm now enjoying reading it to my 3 year old daughter. Birthday's antics have us laughing outloud.He certainly has had a unique life, living with two photographers in New York City. There are many hysterical photos, but many beautiful ones too. I'm buying this for all my cat-loving friends.

What luck. Yesterday was my birthday, AND my nickname is Cat (I do own three, and now I want one more-and you know who Birthday). My best friend bought me this charming book, and I LOVE it! What stories! What pictures! What Humor! How about a movie? All I can say is it's a wonderful book.

As I read this book, I thought they might have borrowed my cat while I was not at home. It brought back memories of my cats antics from kitten to older kitten. A wonderful few hours of fun and memories that I will reread many many times. Not only was the writing wonderful, but the pictures were out of this world. I can't wait for another book by these photographer/authors. Bravo!
