Is that my cat?,這是我的貓嗎?是我那瘦瘦的、苗條的貓嗎?看Jonathan Allan的繪本Is that my cat?封面上圓滾滾的胖貓,就知道這疑問不是空穴來風!到底發生了什麼事? Is that my cat?這是我的貓嗎?

這本繪本藉由小男孩的疑問,一步一步地掀開到底這是不是他原來那隻貓咪的疑問。

Is that my cat? It can’t be.,這是我的貓咪嗎?不可能啊!My cat is a slim, sleek kitty cat.,我的貓咪又瘦又苗條!

Is that my cat? It can’t be.,這是我的貓咪嗎?不可能啊!

My cat is a little cat who leaps in and out of the cat flap.,我的貓咪個頭小小的,在小門口可是鑽來鑽去、進出自如。

Is this my cat?這是我的貓嗎?不可能啊!

What happened to the light little cat I could pick up with one hand?

那個我可以一手就舉起來的小貓咪到哪去了?

Is that my cat? It can’t be.,這是我的貓咪嗎?不可能啊!

My cat is a fussy eater who never finishes her food.

我的貓咪挑食的很,她從來不會把食物吃光光,你看這隻肥貓圓滾滾的的肚子,他怎麼會是我的貓咪呢?

Is that my cat? No way!,這是我的貓嗎?不可能啊!

My cat is a mighty mouse catcher.,我的貓咪可是補鼠高手,哪可能像這隻追不上老鼠呢?

Is that my cat? It can’t be.,這是我的貓嗎?不可能啊!

My cat is a playful puss, always ready for a game.

我的貓咪可愛玩了,她才不會像這隻這樣躺著呢!

小男孩一直狐疑著…Is that my cat? What happened to my cat?

咦?貓咪在喵喵叫什麼呢?Is that my cat purring in the hall closet?

謎底揭曉!IT IS MY CAT, and she has kittens.

瞧!生完小貓咪後,貓咪也恢復她窈窕的身材了!哈哈!!

Are they my cats,

YES, THEY ARE.

在讀這本繪本時,藉由小男孩發現的貓咪外型或行為的改變,我們一直在猜到底這是小男孩的貓咪嗎?一直到最後才知道這貓咪變胖發福又不想動,真正原因是她有寶寶了,這答案真讓人莞爾啊,也讓人體會到媽媽懷著孩子的時候,會為了肚子裡的寶寶行動特別小心,就為了保護肚子裡的孩子啊!簡單的文字、有趣的內容讓孩子可輕鬆閱讀,重覆的句型Is that my cat? It can’t be.,也可重複練習”-at”, “an” word family的單字。
