Booklist "Mewbery" Nominee

"This bouncing tale will have viewers of all ages giggling" --The Bulletin, starred review, on Cats Are a Liquid

"This amusing STEM picture book explores whether and how cats are a liquid . . . As Donnelly and Saburi display, liquid-ish felines make delightful, funny subjects for scientific research and picture books alike." --Publishers Weekly on Cats Are a Liquid

"A humorous, poetic look at the solidity of cats in all their manifestations. The perfect segue to a science or poetry lesson, and good read-aloud fun as well." --School Library Journal on Cats Are a Liquid

"In an endlessly amusing--and strangely thought-provoking--premise ('based on the Ig Nobel Prize-winning investigation'), cats are depicted doing everyday things--lounging, napping, climbing, peeing, bathing--while the text offers double entendres that could refer to the physiology of either housecats or of liquids . . . Pair this gem with A Greyhound, a Groundhog (2017) for a rollicking story time inclusive of cat- and dog- (and hog-) lovers" --Booklist on Cats Are a Liquid
