What I love about Leigh Hodgkinson: Her sweet, sly, and quirky sense of humor. Her mad typography skills. Her ability to use just enough words to tell a story. In this case, the story of Boris the cat. He's soooo sleepy, and finds the perfect place for a nap… until the box gets shipped around the world to all kinds of folks who do NOT want a cat. Will Boris ever find that perfect snoozing spot? (Spoiler: yes, because children's picture book.)

The art is collage and cartoons, wildly eccentric and lots of fun. It's one of our favorite children's books about cats, and possibly one of my personal faves of all children's picture books.

The second Boris book, Boris and the Wrong Shadow, is almost as good. High bar to clear and all that.
