  • First, this book was stunningly beautiful. I had a hard time reading it because I was so enthralled with the illustrations. This was also a wonderful story. My problem with it is one that I have with many of MY favorite children's books, which do not usually translate to being favorites of CHILDREN. Simply, this is a children's story that is told for adults. Other books I love that are in this category are Beethoven Lives Upstairs, Frida!, and just about anything by Peter Sis - all five star boo [...]


  • Gustav is messy! Look at all the sketches he throws about the room. "Katze," he says, catching me staring at the clutter, "painting people requires a great deal of practice!" I love it when a book about an artist emphasizes the hard work and long hours it takes to achieve success!Lush illustrations support the descriptive text that together help you to get a sense of the artist. There isn't really a much of a story but this book successfully captured my daughters' interest in Klimt and his work. [...]


  • This story and introduction to the secessionist artist, Klimt, is told by his cat, who takes us on a journey with the artist, both in his studio and on his travels. Klimt was not popular, but created some unusual works of art, now thought of as art to be admired. The story shows some of how he created, and where he found his ideas, emphasizing his persistence in his work. The illustrations are amazing, filling every page with vibrant color.


  • This story was interesting to me because it taught me about an artist whose work I recognized, but whose life I knew very little about. Written from the perspective of one of Klimt's cats, it details life in his studio as well as his work in Italy.The illustrations are incredibly beautiful and there is a mini-gallery of his paintings at the end of the book. And now I'm probably going to check out every book my library has on Klimt.


  • I saw this book at a gift shop outside a recent Klimt/Rodin exhibition. The illustrations by Octavia Monaco are wonderful in her interpretation of Klimt's style. The story was so-so, and that is the reason for the rating. The printing of the book especially the pages are of excellent quality for this children's book.


  • Gustav Kilmt's cat tells the story of living with the famous italian artist. For an elementary library the book may present little problems due to some nudity in the pictures. The pictures are beautiful, but kids are kids


  • Sorry folks, but this book is a bust for so many reasons. As a children's book, the nudity shown in many of the illustrations makes it inappropriate for school libraries and this should have considered by the illustrator and publisher. This is a shame as the nudity was not really necessary to presenting the artist or his work. (By the way, it is an Italian book translated to English so perhaps the culture is more accepting there.) Secondly, the story of Klimt from the perspective of his cat just [...]


  • Capatti, Berenice. Illus. Octavia Monaco. "Klimt and His Cat". Milan, Italy: Eerdmans. 2004, Print. Autobiography. Age 8-10. This book is about the life of a painter who goes through many different phases and styles but who ultimately is concerned with being remembered. I thought that this book was very weird. I thought that the art in this book did not contribute in any way to the text. I think that this book could have been simply words and it would have had exactly the same message. The pictu [...]


  • The art and narrative is good. I like the concept of a cat's POV. It also does a good job of picking up important details of Klimt's life- from the seccessionist movement to how he was inspired. It also captured how I think Klimt was like. I don't have a problem with nudity in art, but if you do then be prepared. It's not distracting or the forefront, but it's there. I don't kids would even notice if they had this text read to them. There are so many other things to overwhelm them (colors, patte [...]


  • This book is beautiful and I love the idea of kids learning about famous people through a pet's point of view. My biggest issue is why do authors and illustrators feel the need to include naked models or paintings that include naked subjects in children's books? It is such a distraction and derails any story time or read aloud. It is not necessary and there are tons of other famous paintings to include.


  • Not being a student of art, I am not sure how accurate the story is, but we all enjoyed it tremendously (Athena, Joseph and myself). The illustrations were beautiful, and I felt the story made the artist and his art come alive--also felt it was evocative on several other levels.




  • I knew nothing of Klimt but my apartment is named after him so I was curious. I love children's picture-book biographies. This would be a beautiful one to introduce kids to his art.
