Chatchatulah SheShachechah ech Tishal Ochel, a story by BenTziyon Raskin [according to Palmir], artist Chaim Hanft. Published by Tarbut, Poland, Warsaw, 1923.

The story of a kitten who played with puppies until she was hungry. After seeking advice from different animals, she found her mother, who gave her food. Chaim Hanft ... was an extremely strange artist. Like Lissitzky, he also tried to simplify the forms of animals into a condensed, minimalist outline from a color perspective. He provides the animals with human eyes, sometimes laughing and sometimes squinting. Yet his kitten, despite its human face and squinting eyes, is so strange and inadequate that she does invite the child to identify with her at all." [Ayalah Gordon].
