A Gallery of Cats

Ruth BrownClick here for biography

No visit to an art gallery can rival this one! Tom visits a very special exhibition where each picture features a cat. One by one, the cats all leap out and follow him, until a very large, scary cat makes them rush back to the safety of their frames. But these aren't just any cats or any pictures!


'Brown, whose exceptional draughtsmanship makes all her books a feast, visits a gallery with a difference in this picture book about cats and artists. A book to lead readers to 13 painters from Mondrian to Munch and Kahlo to Klimt.' Sunday Times Culture

'What a lovely and memorable way to be introduced to the world of art inside the classroom or out of it.' Books for Keeps

'This book is a delight to explore from start to finish. It's imaginative, expressive and immersive. There is a perfect synergy between art and text… simply sublime' Good Night to Read

'Cleverly conceived and superbly executed. Cat lovers and primary teachers in particular will love this novel way of bringing their work to life for children who have yet to see the real pictures.' Red Reading Hub

'The well-known children's book illustrator Ruth Brown delivers yet another gloriously fun and educational book with a twist. The artwork is combined with a narrative that will excite children and adults alike as they travel through the corridors of an art gallery.' Big Issue North

'This imaginative, inspiring and exquisitely illustrated picture book is itself a masterpiece as the award-winning Brown brings to life a gallery of famous paintings, each with its own funny, feline twist.' Book Marked

'Beautiful exploration of artistic styles through pictures of cats reminiscent of famous masterpieces' The School Run

'I'm a firm believer in the ability of children's picture books to be and do anything, and this is the most recent example I've come across of such a release ... Ruth Brown has crafted an ingenious piece of art here, very different from the usual picture book fare, but all the more glittering for that.' Simon Lamb
