Top of the Shelf: Cool Cat

Cool Cat by Nonny Hogrogian

No words are needed to relate this whimsical tale of Cool Cat's efforts to transfer his bleak world of broken bottles and littered cans into one filled with colorful flowers, butterflies, and greenery.  The cat's paint box provides the catalyst for the rabbits, squirrels, turtles, and birds to help change their environment. A subtle and important message, beautifully accomplished, on making the world a better place to be.
