    Children's books by genre have the right to be nonsensical for no other reason than to be entertaining Backstage Cat seemed like a story that was drummed up to go with a few random artist sketches from bright new artist star for Blue Apple It's boring and stupid which is the opposite of entertaining The cat goes to the theater The cat escapes into the theater No one in the theater can get the cat to come down from the high place The leading lady sings a boring song to the cat who immediately comes down and promises to stay on a chair during the performance But mouse happens so cat happens which somehow saves the day Young children could be mildly amused at the antics of the cat but this is a one and done story and I'm not planning to read it to my youngsters Childish garish illustrations only work when the story is spot on 12 star for the illustrations 1 star for the story

    Cute but I found it odd for the crew to tell the cat what there job title was like that was supposed to convince the cat to come down from the tree Other than that I liked it


  5. Sandy Sandy says:

    While I appreciated the use of stage terms and theatrical job titles the story itself just wasn't that interesting

    This runaway cat seems to be making uite a disturbance in the theater what will happen? Will the show go on? Or will the runaway cat make a mess of it all? This funny runaway cat will delight all readers People who have cats will understand about their cats climbing up high into things As well as the love owners have for their cats

    It was ok It didn't have much of a point and the illustrations weren't my favorite It wasn't silly but it didn't have a message either so that's why I wasn't super impressed

    From my blog uill CaféIn accordance with the FTC I would like to disclose that I received a review copy of this title from Edelweiss The opinions expressed are mine and no monetary compensation was offered to me by the author or publisher Being the cat of a leading lady is a fine life The world of the theatre is fascinating and sensational with much to be explored and discovered When Simon a cheeky and curious ginger cat makes his unexpected debut on the stage there is plenty of hectic excitement to be had Can a backstage cat be a star too?A mischievous cat in the world of theatre is a marvellous concept Simon is a pampered soul but he demonstrates from the beginning that he is very much an individual with plenty of curiosities The insight into the world of the theatre was wonderful I loved the seuence where the leading lady is getting prepped in her dressing room to go onstage showing how her makeup wig and accessories are applied in a two page spreadSimon’s debut beyond the wings was a riot The idea of a cat getting loose in the midst of a theatrical production is a comical one and was handled brilliantly My favourite part in the whole book was the line “I do not obey” and the cheeky look on Simon’s face I was in stitches; it was just so accurate a portrayal of a cat’s dispositionThe stagehands’ attempt at coaxing Simon off set was a theatrical performance in itself and much as the cat was having a ball so was I as a reader The over the top solutions they took to capture this cat were juxtaposed with plausible situations such as Simon being tucked away among the spotlights It was fabulousThe illustrations balanced soft water colours and vivacious pencil sketches that give the scenes both a smooth and vibrant feel The story was full of energy and came alive on the page whether it was with the bright hues of the stage or the dark blues of the entranced audience as the leading lady sang her solo'Backstage Cat' by Harriet Ziefert is a lively and humorous read that I would recommend to lovers of cats and theatre Jenni Desmond's illustrations are simply sublime
