PB Planet Spotlight: Uncle Andy's Cats

Big PB Planet applause for Uncle Andy's Cats by James Warhola (G.P. Putnam's Sons, Penguin Young Readers Group, 2009). In this fantastically fun feline fable, based upon the author's real-life experiences with his famous Pop artist uncle, we learn the origin of Andy Warhol's numerous cats--all named Sam. From naps in the wig drawer to frolicking amongst the Campbell's soup boxes, the Sams soon have the run of Warhol's studio home. Soon, there's no denying it: they have too many Sams! What can they do? Kids will love the clever resolution and adorable cats throughout--and even learn a little art history in the process! Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!
