About The Book

Why do kittens purr?

Because they're happy,

deep inside their fur.

Lions roar in the dining room and frogs hop down the stairs as a child's curiosity leads to whimsical fun. Marion Dane Bauer and Henry Cole create an inviting child's-eye view of the world in their imaginative book.
