Very easy to get through, quirky, with just enough substance to be satisfying, and...well, for goodness sake: Millions of Cats. What else can be said? MILLIONS OF CATS! Great little children's book.

5.0 out of 5 stars catlore for you July 31 2013
By Storywraps TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This black and white picture book is a tale of a very lonely, old couple who live in a "nice clean house which had flowers all around it, except where the door was." One day the old woman sighs and wishes for a cat. Her loving, dedicated husband sets out to find the perfect cat for her and grants her that wish. After walking through many hills and valleys he stumbles upon a hill completely covered with cats, "hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats." (Oh I remember so well reading that repetitive line to my kindergartener's and them chanting that back to me every time it popped up in the book thereafter). Great fun!

The old man wanted to pick the prettiest cat for his wife but every time he looked in another direction he spotted the next pretty cat. He scooped up as many pretty cats as his old arms could hold and headed off home. But guess what? The rest of the felines followed along behind him until he reached his house. His wife took one look at the cat-mob and exclaimed, "We can never feed that many cats", "What are we going to do with them all?" She had her husband rush indoors and shut the door behind them leaving the cats to decide which one of them was the prettiest. After a fierce, fatal quarrel amongst the out - of -control swarm of cats, the couple take a peek through the window and there is not one cat left outside in their yard. Off in the bushes they notice a small, scrawny kitten huddling there and they come out to rescue it. The little guy had decided he wasn't pretty enough to enter the beauty contest so he snuck away and safely hid himself from the mayhem and chaos .

The old couple lovingly pick him up and take him inside where they nourish and pamper him into perfect health.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic book for the next generation! Nov. 13 2012
By Avaren
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had this book as a child, and had saved it for when I had my own children. When my daughter was a baby, she found it and tore it up, and I didn't think I would be able to find it again, so I was stoked that I found it here on Amazon! The quality is awesome, thick paper cover and pages, with the same classic story I loved as a child. My daughter is now 4, and loves this story, and she made sure to tell me she would never tear it up again!

I'm ashamed to say that prior to a children's literature course I took, I was completely ignorant of the works of Wanda Gag and her elegant, "Millions of Cats" until the ripe old age of 25. As it stands, the book is amazingly timeless, accompanied by beautiful pen and ink drawings illustrating each and every scene. There are plenty of details per page for kids to point out on their own and the words will not tax the average child. The daughter of a Bohemian painter, Gag was a superb artist in her own right. Nowhere else will you find this as evident as in "Millions of Cats". It remains one of the best American classic picture books of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first book I loved! Oct. 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:School & Library Binding
This is the first book that I ever loved. Who remembers anything from kindergarten? I'm almost 30 now and I remember checking a book out over and over again. I loved it so much, I think I wanted to steal it! I'm so glad that I found this book and I look forward to passing it on to my own children someday.
