    Totally picked this up because of the cover a cat AND a moon This utterly adorable picture book, first published in 1947, has been re released by North South Books, who always seems to print the coolest books from across the ocean Pitschi is a kitten who always wanted to be something else, and I think this could make a fun puppet show or storytelling with some tweaking.Hans Fischer has a great way with line, much like Jules Feiffer some of his kittens seem to be Totally picked this up because of the cover a cat AND a moon This utterly adorable picture book, first published in 1947, has been re released by North South Books, who always seems to print the coolest books from across the ocean Pitschi is a kitten who always wanted to be something else, and I think this could make a fun puppet show or storytelling with some tweaking.Hans Fischer has a great way with line, much like Jules Feiffer some of his kittens seem to be made only of coily springs of line, yet they look so alive Imagine my surprise to read that the illustrations were done with stone lithography, not pens From the back flap While another artist might arduously belabor the details of a painting in an attempt to impersonate life, wrote Anita Silvey in her book Children s Books and Their Creators, in just a swift stroke of a pencil Hans Fischer could capture a living breathing character on the page The scene of tiny Pitschi resting up in a HUGE bed is one of my favorites Or maybe it s the cat table

    Originally published in Switzerland in 1947 and then first published in the US in 1953, this book is a classic that I had never read before Old Lisette has two cats, five kittens, and a dog who are near her playing as she knits outside That is all of the kittens are playing except for one who is sitting still and dreaming Pitschi is muchinterested in exploring and dreaming than playing with her siblings So off she heads into the farmyard There she finds a rooster who struts proudly P Originally published in Switzerland in 1947 and then first published in the US in 1953, this book is a classic that I had never read before Old Lisette has two cats, five kittens, and a dog who are near her playing as she knits outside That is all of the kittens are playing except for one who is sitting still and dreaming Pitschi is muchinterested in exploring and dreaming than playing with her siblings So off she heads into the farmyard There she finds a rooster who struts proudly Pitschi decides that she wants to be a rooster and gives her best strut and crow But when their crowing draws another rooster in and they fight, Pitschi decides she doesn t want to be a rooster any One after another Pitschi discovers an animal, thinks it would be grand to be that, and then learns about the drawbacks Goats are milked Ducks swim And rabbits live in danger from foxes and owls Luckily the old dog and Old Lisette are there to rescue a lost kitten after dark and remind her how grand it is to be a kitten after all.There is a wonderful pluckiness about this little kitten She is often unafraid, bold and always curious Her willingness to reinvent herself is very endearing and makes for a book that is a great foil for books where the character is seeking to find those who are like themselves Here Pitschi relishes the differences and the new character traits she finds Fischer s art is free form and simple Often colored with washes of only a few colors, his use of line is done with great skill and ease The simple curlicues of a tree branches, the squiggles that form a rabbit s tail, and the swirls of a basket The illustrations come to life because of this simplicity.Highly recommended If you missed this treasure from the 40s and 50s, you are in luck because North South is re releasing it this year Share it with cat lovers or in story times about cats or farms It is a real Swiss treat

    I recently ordered this book in soft cover from a sale book catalog In my childhood, the hard cover book was the one I remember reading and loving As an adult, I have a new admiration for the illustrations in this book they are wonderful and outstanding For the holidays, I gave the book as a gift to an artist friend cat lover who appreciated the book from those two perspectives.

    Becky s right the kitten tucked into the huge bed is definitely the best illustration, as it is completely adorable I do wonder about creating a list of picture books with animals dealing with identity crises There seem to be a lot of them Favorite Quote Sleeping on a bench next to her were the cats Mauli and Ruli Their five kittens had just turned six weeks old Two of them, Grigri and Groggi, were wrestling Patschi was playing with a ball of wool, and Negri was trying to climb to broom Becky s right the kitten tucked into the huge bed is definitely the best illustration, as it is completely adorable I do wonder about creating a list of picture books with animals dealing with identity crises There seem to be a lot of them Favorite Quote Sleeping on a bench next to her were the cats Mauli and Ruli Their five kittens had just turned six weeks old Two of them, Grigri and Groggi, were wrestling Patschi was playing with a ball of wool, and Negri was trying to climb to broom But the last one, the smallest and daintiest of them all, wasn t playing like the others She just sat in the basket, dreaming Her name was Pitschi
