WHO COULD RESIST THIS ADORABLE KITTEN?
Confession: I absolutely cannot resist kittens or cats. Admittedly, I'm totally untrustworthy anywhere near where cats are offered for adoption. That said you'll know there's bias in my comments re SCRAWNY CAT.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Alison Friend's gouache illustrations are sweet, touching when we first see the cat with his bony body and huge golden eyes. "He was lonely. He was little. He was lost." He had once belonged to someone who was kind to him and knew his name. But now everyone called him "Get out of here" as he was repeatedly shut out of any place of comfort or safety.
One day a big dog began to chase the cat who ran for his life all the way to the dock where he hid in a dinghy. When a heavy storm developed the dog ran away but the wind blew so hard that it broke the rope tying the dinghy to the dock.
What can happen to a small hungry cat when he finds himself alone at sea? Phyllis Root provides a satisfying answer to that question.
