Fortune Cookies - Albert Bitterman and Chris Raschka

HERE COMES THE CAT! (McSweeney's McMullens, $12.95) features Vladimir Vagin's fantastical drawings of a mouse traveling the world in a hot air balloon, alerting his fellow citizens that the cat is on his way. As the mouse journeys through landscapes and seascapes, Frank Asch's text is repeated in both English and Russian, cementing the partnership between the American author and Russian illustrator. In the end, it turns out the mice of the world have less to fear from the coming of the cat than they think. Originally printed in 1989, this unique picture book was the first collaboration between Russian and American publishing. Ages 5-8 – Julia Colton
