It's a Secret by John Burningham

One night when Marie Elaine finds her cat dressed up in a red coat and green plumed hat, she pleas to accompany him on what becomes a wonderful nighttime excursion to a rooftop party where dancing, balloons, games and treats are part of the fun. As to where it all happened Marie Elaine later explains to her mother, she cannot tell: it's a secret!
