What a silly, silly title! Of course there are cats in this picture book. Lots of them! So many, in fact, I bet you can't even count them all. When you open this interactive book you'll see me (I'm called Tiny) and my two feline friends, Andre and Moonpie.

You'll see that the three of us don't really want to stay in the book. In fact, we are trying awfully hard to get out of it. We try jumping off the page to get out into the real world but to no avail. It seems we are stuck inside this picture book! Darn! Hiss, hiss, scratch, scratch!

Then we'll ask you to help us. 'Close your eyes and wish for us ... Wish us out into the world. Ready? Go!'

Holy cat whiskers! Guess what happens? Yup, we aren't in the book any more! But to let you know we are OK, there's a post card from us. Of course, we do come back after a few empty pages. And, when we return, we'll bring you a great, big surprise.

You like surprises don't you? Of course! I bet you'll really like this. What is it? I'm not going to tell you! You'll have to look at the last page of the book! Meow!
