In 1986, two artists, one Russian, one American, joined forces, against the odds, to tell a brand new kind of picture story.
In Here Comes the Cat!, a single mouse runs around shouting "HERE COMES THE CAT!" again and again in both English and Russian until everybody he knows is worried sick. Just when the tension can't get any tenser, the cat arrives with a giant wheel of cheese! A big party breaks out and everyone the reader included laughs a huge laugh of relief.
Funny, whip-smart, and illustrated in mesmerizing detail, Here Comes the Cat! is a parable about fear, more relevant than ever, that follows in the great tradition of Chicken Little. McSweeney's proudly presents this deluxe new edition, complete with a fold-out dust-jacket, on the 25th anniversary of the book's conception.---from the publisher
