What's Construction Cat About

Publisher Summary

Cats in hard hats make work seem like play in this cheery, rhyming picture book about building something and having a loving family to share your accomplishments with. Construction cat wakes up at dawn, grabs her boots and tugs them on… It’s time to build! Tail high, Construction Cat kisses her family goodbye and goes to work with the other cats on a construction site. They lug lumber and pound nails, they saw, sand, and sweep the dust, all to build a truly paw-some park that they can’t wait to share with friends and family! Sydney Hanson’s lively and lovable cats combined with Barbara Odanaka’s rhythmic story create a universal story that is a joy to read again and again.

Who Wrote Construction Cat

Barbara Odanaka

From my earliest days, I loved books and the magic of a well-told tale. I spent countless hours at our local library, where I discovered treasures including my all-time favorite, “”Charlie And The Chocolate Factory”” by Roald Dahl. In first grade, I discovered an old (manual) typewriter in our garage and slowly tap-tap-tapped out my first story: “”The Happy Hamster.”” I was hooked!

Years later, I was lucky enough to land a job at the Los Angeles Times. I spent nearly a decade there when an editor called me aside and asked why I had been rhyming some of the lines in my column. I had not realized I was doing this! It dawned on me that maybe it was time to pursue a different kind of writing. Since then, I’ve published four books for kids, all in rhyme. I hope my readers feel the same magic I did when I was their age.
