Tangram Cat, Hardback Book


A boy plays with tangram. He uses the pieces to lay a cat - a wonderful cat of course; you can leave that up to Martijn van der Linden.

But the cat feels lonely... Suddenly I understood the cat. `You want someone to play with!' I said. The cat still didn 't say anything. But I knew I was right. Now tangram isn't easy. The boy thinks he's laying down a new cat, but it turns out to be a dog, which chases after the cat.

A new try turns out to be a crocodile - not what you would call a nice friend!

The cat has to put up with a lot before the boy gets a really good idea.

He lays down himself! Now they can play together. Artist couple Martijn and Maranke constantly reinvent themselves. In Tangram Cat , they surpass themselves yet again.

All pictures in the book can be made with the tangram game that is included at the back.
