Book Details

Filled with whimsical knitted cats, Anna Hrachovec's debut picture book Catside Up, Catside Down blends the silliness of cats with an early introduction to prepositions.

Catside up, catside down.
Cat on a turntable, spinning around!
Under a piano, over the moon,
swept high and away by a cat-shaped balloon.

A collection of cozy, knitted cats find themselves in all sorts of funny positions in this rhyming picture book that introduces prepositions like over, under, between, beside, and many more!

In The News

“Catside up, / catside down,” proclaims the first page in bold black lettering. At the top right of the stark white page, a sweet-looking tannish cat smiles above the rim of a blue basket. There is no mistaking the fact that the black cat in the lower left is “catside down.” Across the gutter, there’s a bright pink “cat on a turntable, spinning around”—and again, quirky, masterful details in the art. On every page, prepositions are shown in boldface. The humorous text includes sophisticated vocabulary, with words such as configure and astraddle. The image of a feline pair with limbs linked (for “cats akimbo”) is particularly funny, as is the cat matryoshka doll. The visuals are witty and whimsical but also spot-on in their portrayals of typical cat behavior—right through to the final, purrfect catnap."—Kirkus, starred review
