Cat Tricks is a unique picture book written and illustrated by Keith Baker and published in 1997 by Harcourt Brace & Company. I own a copy of this book. I first discovered it at my local library a few years ago. I was drawn right away to the unusual shape-tall and slim. Upon opening it, I discovered a cleverly illustrated book that uses “flaps” to change the picture on the page to a totally different picture. Well, that was enough for me, I went out and bought a copy soon after. I really like books that are different. That’s probably why I like pop-up books and other novelty books so much.
