Won Ton (whose real name is undisclosed until the end of the book) is a delightfully snarky cat who starts out in an animal shelter, is discovered by a boy, and must train the boy in the art of caring for an Oriental prince. The story is told entirely in haiku, and Wardlaw's use of language is a treat. Pair this with Andrew Clements' Dogku for a great storytime during National Poetry Month or any other month of the year!
