“What fun it is to travel with Beato to Greenland! This precious story about an adventurous cat has captured the hearts of kids and the adult readers alike at Planet Atlanta. While the trip may be fantastic, the story show also shows the real customs and culture of Greenland and the rich illustrations are wonderfully true to life. Kudos to author Sucheta Rawal and illustrators Alexandra Abagiu and Oana Cocheci for creating this entertaining journey for us. Beato Goes to Greenland is such a beautiful experience to read and enjoy. – we can’t wait to see where this globe-trotting cat goes next!” ~ Molly Read Woo, Planet Atlanta


“My 8 year old beamed with joy, with his eyes sparkling ..said ” Mummy ..did you read this so has an exciting story and the graphics are astounding and the characters AWESOME 🙂 I asked him..what did you find inspiring and he answered .. Beato pursued his pursuit for adventure..left his Loving parents , his sibling Russo, and the comforts of HOME and followed his heart to explore the world beyond the boundaries of his warm, cozy HOME ..he met varied people and learned about different cultures ..isnt that inspiring ?
Smilingly, I nodded and said that is what parents want children to do..though hard to let go, they encourage children to explore and learn and bring back treasures of Life – Life Experiences 🙂
So, I would say that ” Beato goes to Greenland” is just not for Pre-schoolers but for all who envisage and conceptualize learning through adventures and exploring across boundaries and experiences ..” A Mother’s Perspective..”
Thank You Sucheta Rawal for introducing ” Beato goes to Greenland” is just not an AWESOME read for the children but also a learning graph for the Parents to connect their children to a broader peripheral of Learning through Travelling and Learning.” ~ Deepa Mahanti Sareen


“A delightful read! Children (and adults) will learn some interesting facts about Greenland, its people, and its culture through an entertaining story. The illustrations are very good, too.” ~ Daniel Sklar

  1. I read this beautifully illustrated book to my cat, Mowgli. He enjoyed it thoroughly, and with that inspiration is now planning on embarking with Beato on his next adventure! The good news is that both cats live in the same city, just about a half an hour drive away from each other. Mowgli would like to travel to India to visit with his sister Bubba in Poona, and hopes that Beato would be inclined to as well.

  2. I met the author of the book at their open house event and got a first hand insight and the inspiration behind this drive. I must say and agree with her that there are very few, if so, children books that are based on personal experiences of the author’s visits to these places around the world, capturing real scenarios and experiences with introduction to beautiful towns/cities in these countries. The book is not only interesting because the story line is great but it is very educational. The book introduces different cultures and their lifestyles making it even more fun to read. A very nice blend of entertainment and educational information. I must mention that I met BEATO and got a chance to not only pet him but take pictures with him. He is a big proud cat, I must say. How awesome is that.!!!

  3. Sucheta is a dear friend and I do keep track of all her travels through her blogs. “Beato goes to Greenland” is the first among the series of children’s books that she is publishing and I enjoyed reading the book. The illustrations are beautiful and do a great job of bringing her travel stories to life. The book has just the right combination of facts and adventure to make it interesting as well as educational for the kids. Through a very simple narrative, Sucheta manages to paint a vivid picture of the Inuit traditions, people, culture and topography of Greenland. The fact that the story is told through the eyes of a pet (a luxurious cat named Beato) in a modern setting makes it super fun, engaging and something that kids can easily relate to. I can’t wait to find out where Beato goes next !

  4. My 3 year old son have discovered these terrific picture books. He is learning about different cultures and frankly so am I. In “Beato Goes to Israel” it was nice to return to a country that I have extensively traveled and see that this adorable character has embraced the best of the country in such an endearing way. I look forward to Beato’s next adventure!

  5. I read Beato goes to Greenland to my 8 year old cousin (translated to French) and she was giggling the whole time because the images are so fun.
    It looked like she traveled with Beato and when I told her that he was a real cat, she was so excited and wanted to meet him right away.
