This picture book is a story about a cat who lives in a temple. It takes place in an ancient civilization where the people worship cats, and he is seen as a god. His every need is taken care of, but he does not get to do the normal things that cats like to do. So one night he escapes and finds his own happiness. The illustrations are striking. I think this would be a good picture book to read when you are studying ancient civilizations. Catherine read this book three times before I had a chance to read it to the kids.
