"Beverlee Beaz the Brown Burmese, by Regan W. H. Macaulay, beautifully illustrated by Alex Zgud, is an imaginative cat adventure. Beverlee is on a fun romp through nearby meadows, hills, woods, a pond, and by a river—which looks like a creek in the illustration. Beverlee meets a lot of familiar creatures on her outing. She imagines each one to be an exotic, fierce, prehistoric, or mythical animal that she’s running from. Her final encounter leads to a sweet ending as she is carried home.
Alex Zgud’s playful artwork is a joy and delight. Beverlee bounds, trots, and sprints across the pages. Children will thrill to an adventuring cat with such a vivid imagination and a story so wonderfully worded and adorably illustrated.
Parents and teachers will also enjoy this thrilling flight of fantasy. It’s the perfect vehicle to stimulate budding student authors to write their own exciting, make-believe adventure stories. Ms. Macaulay’s fun-filled cat’s adventure is highly recommended for ages 5 to 8."
