Big Cat, little Cat by Elisha Cooper is a tender look at the lives of cats. Big cat is alone until a little cat comes to stay. Big cat teaches little cat everything he needs to know and they have wonderful years together with their family as little cat grows and grows. After many years Big Cat “goes away” and little cat is alone, until the next little cat arrives and is shown the ropes by the former little cat. Simple black and white illustrations capture the curiosity and whimsy of cats.
