Ketzel, the Cat Who Composed

We rated this book:


Moshe is a composer. He turns sounds into music. He finds a cat. Moshe tries to make a sixty-minute composition for a contest. It doesn’t go very well. The cat makes some music by crawling on the piano. Moshe says it’s brilliant, and it’s twenty-one seconds. Moshe sends the cat’s music into the contest. She wins a certificate. Moshe takes the kitty to the concert hall to hear her song played. The cat meows when she hears her name. That is my favorite part. The cat’s name is Ketzel, which means “kitten.” We looked up what it meant. The manager wants to get rid of the cat. The judges say she can stay. The girl plays the song on the piano. (I liked the song when I heard it.) The cat wins money and signs the check with her paw. I like the story. Little kids might like it. It isn’t all true. Everyone loved it when there was a big meow. I like the pictures. My favorite is the one of the kitty walking on the piano. The illustrator drew the cat very well. It looks not really realistic, but realistic. Now that I’ve read this book, I’m better at the piano. The kitty’s inspiring me.
