Description
A precocious tabby is told to "get a human" by her feline friends, but not just any owner will do. When Mimi meets Mr. Dada—a very unconventional and unpopular artist—it is a true meeting of the minds. "A hiccup is art. And you are art, even though you look like a feather duster," Mimi tells her prospective owner. Shelley Jackson's book boasts marvelous collages and paintings, combining sheet music, newsprint, photographs, and vintage illustrations, and creative typography as well—in various fonts, the words slide across the pages in madcap fashion. Readers 4 to 8 will delight in the nonsensical text, while adults will appreciate the whirlwind tour of early 20th-century art. The author's note gives a brief summary of the Dada movement, explains some of the references in the story, and makes suggestions for further reading.
