I Am a Cat is Galia’s debut picture book as both author and illustrator. It’s a story about Simon, an average house cat. He tries to tell Lion, Cheetah, Puma, Panther and Tiger that he is just like them. The big cats look shocked and then start laughing hysterically. It takes some convincing but the big cats have no choice but to recognize that Simon is just like them, just smaller. I love the illustrations and all the cats. Their expressions carry the story so much further.
