The Secret Cat

(2) K-3 Transparent cat Silvring appears to a girl who longs for a real pet. Together they venture into the city night, Silvring growing with the girl's imagination as they encounter other people and their "pets." Lush watercolors in saturated blues, pinks, and greens complement the straightforward text. The combination of precise figure work with sweeping, atmospheric washes of color echoes the dynamic union of a real girl and her fantastical companion.
