Minette's Feast by Susanna Reich

A picture book from the point of view of Julia Child’s cat, this book lovingly charts Julia Child’s culinary progress in muted watercolors and her cat’s eventual preference of Child’s cooking over mouse. Bates’s illustrations are richly textured and detailed, offering ample surprises when pored over. A gem of a picture book.
