Great Cats, Small Cats
コメント:A boy's journey round the Earth.

 I said,
in my past writings,
that the Japanese word "neko"
is only for small cats which
you see on the street or
in your houses.

This picture book gives you
good examples of cats in English language.

"Have you seen my cat?"
a boy gives a question to a businessman.
The man takes the boy to a
public garden which keeps a
great yellow cat with long hair round his head.
The boy says:
"This is not my cat!"

The boy then gives the same quetion to a
cowboy on horseback.
The cowboy takes him to grasslands
where he sees a great brown cat.
But the boy says:
"This is not my cat!"

The boy gives the same question to a
Mexican on a horse-like animal with long ears.
The Mexican takes him over a mountain, and so on.

The boy goes round the earth and
sees a number of great, natural cats.
But they are not his cats!

Then he sees a small, house cat with long, white hair.
But it's not his cat.

What does he see at the end of the long journey?
Get a copy of the book and see it yourself.

Eric Carle. Have You Seen My Cat? Aladdin Picture Books.

The story is 93 words long.
SSS readers say that the level of language is 0.1.
