I recruited my seven year-old granddaughter to take turns with me reading this to my two year-old granddaughter. Coincidentally these are the extremes of the recommended age range for this book. It's a fun story with two friends, Kat and Maus, (who are what you'd expect them to be from their names) both confused about what's going on. Maus isn't sure where he or she is while Kat can't figure out why Maus has disappeared.
The two year-old was intrigued by the illustrations. The seven year-old had no problems with the vocabulary and thought the story fun to read to her little sister. I'd recommend Kat and Maus as a solid choice for an early reader, or for a parent or older sibling to read to a preschooler.
