Walker & Company: NY, 2001.
This is a fun book for train and cat lovers. A train goes for its usual run and does run into Trouble - the cat. Until that point, it looks like a real train situation, though the background and people were drawn less realistically intentionally. As soon as you see the black illustration with eyes, you know just what Trouble is. It's a funny twist to the story. It wasn't until well after Trouble made his appearance that I noticed the feet of the people.
Another great read aloud with some characteristic cat pictures - the eyes, Trouble stepping over the town and peeking from behind a building. Look close at the arch on the cover. It looks like a cave. Guess again.
The illustrations are the centerpiece of the book. Wonderful attention to detail as well as some dramatic views. Mallat doesn't waste any space - not with her wording nor with any filler.
