Cat Problems (Animal Problems) (Library Binding)
July/August 2021 Kids Indie Next List
“I am so psyched that there’s a new Jory John and Lane Smith book! And it’s about cats and a day in their real lives! And a squirrel!”
— René Kirkpatrick, University Book Store, Seattle, WA
A cat's life is not as easy as it seems! While we might have plenty of humans who love and feed us, there is a long list of complaints that can fill many pages, not just this delightfully grumpy book.

Just like most cats, this cat lives an extremely comfortable life. But he has his problems too!
The sun spot he's trying to bathe in won't stop moving. He keeps getting served dry food instead of wet. And don't even get him started on the vacuum--it's an absolute menace!--and the nosy neighbor squirrel that just can't seem to mind its own business. Will this cat ever find the silver lining?
Jory John and Lane Smith once again air their grievances in this must-have companion book to Penguin Problems and Giraffe Problems.
LANE SMITH has written and illustrated a bunch of stuff, including Grandpa Green, which was a Caldecott Honor Book; It's a Book, which has been translated into over twenty-five languages; and The Stinky Cheese Man. Four of his books have been New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books of the Year. In 2012, the Eric Carle Museum named him an Honor Artist for "lifelong innovation in the field of children's books." In 2014, he received the Society of Illustrators Lifetime Achievement Award. Lane and book designer Molly Leach live in rural Connecticut. Visit him on the Web at lanesmithbooks.com.
