Pahiro | 4 comments The story was about an older cat, explaining the way the world works to a kitten. The kitten was the lead character of the story. I believe he (the kitten) was a black cat and that he was on the cover of the book.

Parents would've read this to me around 1990, when I was 5.
Country = South Africa but in all likelihood it was published in Great Britain.

Pahiro | 4 comments It was a large book, A4. I can't specifically recall a visual memory of the contents so I would assume that it had more text than images, but I would think that there were quite a number of illustrations.

Pahiro | 4 comments PS. If it wasn't clear, the cat was explaining vehicles to the kitten.

Pahiro | 4 comments Found it. Playtime Animal Stories by Helena Zmatlıková and Josef Kolář. Courtesy of my mother. Seems to be a rather obscure book.
