Katy Cat’s friend is a puffin called Beaky Boo. They are very different animals, and in this book we are going to see how different they are. Katy begins by telling us that she is orange in color, and she asks “What color are you, Beaky Boo?” It turns out that Beaky Boo isn’t just one color, he is multicolored.

Katy tells us next that she has whiskers. What does Beaky Boo have? Does he have horns or ears, fins or a trunk? No, Beaky Boo does not have any of these things. Instead, he has a colorful beak.

Children are going to love exploring Katy and Beaky Boo’s world in this colorful book.  With more than forty flaps to lift, children will explore colors, stripes and spots, animal sounds, clothes, textures, numbers and more.

With so many concepts to look at and learn about, this is the perfect book for a child who is interested in many things.
