A simple and well-told tale. A black cat with flashing green eyes, on a moonlit night, falls into a vat of white paint and is now white! Just as he is enjoying the phenomena, rain plays spoilsport and washes the paint away. The disappointed cat lets out a big - Miaow!

An added advantage of the book is that it is bi-lingual. English text well translated into Hindi will enable a child from either language background to understand and appreciate the other.

The strength of the book lies in its illustrations. Highly stylized, bold black lines against vivid background colours are eye-catching and is sure to attract the child.
