Gr 1-3--The Cat in the Hat (featured in the PBS kids series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!) is back with light facts about nocturnal animals. He wakes two children, Sally and Dick, and invites them to board his convertible three-wheel hovercraft to "meet some of the critters that come out at night." The Cat discusses the reasons why some creatures are active in the dark. Through accessible, rhyming text, Rabe describes topics such as habitat, mating habits, and physical adaptations (for instance, the large ear holes that allow owls to hear their prey both above and below ground). Text boxes define words such as nocturnal and diurnal and provide pronunciation guides. Though the cartoon illustrations portray the activities of the various animals realistically, they are recognizably Seuss-like and will engage fans. VERDICT This simple and useful overview will bolster juvenile nonfiction easy reader collections.--Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CACopyright 2015 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
