Brendan Wenzel is the hottest new name on the picture book scene: After a heated auction where eight publishers battled for his Eric Carle-esque They All Saw A Cat, Chronicle Books won out. Diving into the idea of individual perception, They All Saw A Cat is told from the perspectives of several different animals, all of which see the same cat in vastly different ways: Some see him as ferocious, while others see a cuddly furball.

Chronicle Books will publish They All Saw A Cat on Aug. 30, but EW reveals the book’s adorable trailer, exclusively, above.
