CHILDREN'S book of the week.

THEY ALL SAW A CAT by Brendan Wenzel (Chronicle Books, hardback PS10.99, ebook PS7.34). Available August 30 HHHH H CHILDREN'S books have always pushed at the boundaries of little perceptions - and we seem to be in something of a golden age right now of imaginative publishing for kids, with this year's This Is Not A Book (Jean Jullien and Meagan Bennett, Phaidon) and BJ Novak's The Book With No Pictures (Dial).

They All Saw A Cat is visually in a league of its own, inviting the reader to see a cat from multiple different perspectives: the cute, fluffy pet of the boy; the big-eyed predator of the goldfish; the pixellated, Pollock-esque hunter of the bee; the furry mountainous ride of the flea, as the cat slinks along through the world.

New York-based illustrator Brendan Wenzel is an ardent conservationist and it shows in his ability to get inside so many different creatures' viewpoints.

One for cat and animal lovers
