In The Adventures of Coco Le Chat: The World’s Most Fashionable Feline, Coco, a tortoiseshell Cornish Rex cat, travels to New York City. Over the course of a week, this fashionable feline visits the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York City Ballet, Coney Island, Central Park, the Plaza Hotel, and, of course, being a feline fashionista, a number of famous department stores.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of putting outfits on cats unless they’re photoshopped. I think most cats would find it stressful. Cats are such beautiful creatures, they don’t need adornments. However, I have met the real Coco, and she actually seems to enjoy being a couture cat. She even has her own website and Facebook page. And while I still think that Coco is so stunning “au naturel” that she doesn’t need clothes to enhance her beauty, the book is so beautifully illustrated and photographed, I just had to share it with you.
New York City is my favorite city in the world, and I enjoyed seeing Coco in a variety of some of my favorite spots in the city. Jennifer Cascino’s whimsical illustations purr-fectly compliment Paul Nathan’s photography. The narrative, provided by Nadine Rubin Nathan, guides the reader through Coco’s adventures.
Even though the book is aimed at children, this book will charm adults as well.
