Overview


Stray cat Nin drifts from house to house until he meets a meteorologist named Mark. Then Nin begins his greatest journey yet—to the top of Mount Washington. Follow Nin to a land where the wind howls, snow swirls and wild bears roam. At the Mount Washington Observatory, Nin learns that the best friends—and a wonderful home—can be found anywhere, even high above the clouds.

Editorial Reviews

Nothing is less predictable than the life of a stray cat. Take Nin, for instance. Drifting from home to home in search of food and ephemeral friendship, Nin happens upon a friendly meteorologist named Mark. From garbage cans and dumpsters, our footloose feline hero now graduates to the very summit of Mount Washington! A charming, eye-opening children's book by the author of Tying Down the Wind and Among the Clouds.
