Jen NesselFunny and whimsical and engaging.
—New York Times Book Review
Children will ...
Children will love counting all the irresistible cats in John Hassett's lively artwork, as the town that refuses to help finds itself caught in a hilarious quandary and finally learns the importance of lending a hand.
John and Ann Hassett collaborated on We Got My Brother at the Zoo and Charles of the Wild, which Booklist described as humorous, winsome, and cozy.
With rapidly increasing numbers of cats stuck in her tree, Nana Quimby asks for help from the firehouse, the police, the pet shop, the zoo, the library, and even city hall, but no one will help rescue the cats.
"As much fun for the reader as the listener." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
"The Hassetts' gentle humor and equally light brushwork possess a delicate charm, and the careful Nana ensures that every cat leaves its lofty perch." Publishers Weekly
“Funny and whimsical and engaging . . . . This is a book to read and reread, with cats to count and recount, and little visual details like satellite dishes and mice on windowsills to spot with each new pass.” New York Times Book Review Notable Book

Couragestar, keep in mind that you brought this upon yourself. I am not done. The most confusing part is at the next result, while Jadestone's and Shadowkissed's are at result one. This next part no one is aware of yet but it still exists so I gotta mention it. Many of the above were of BloodClan. A few are now at RogueClan. The majority I refuse to rp and about ten a couple others rp. Only three (Light, Vapour, & Mynt), once four (Ripple), are of AshClan. Now, please read part two. Merci.

I enjoy sharing this book with my grandchildren. It is clever and interesting for adults as well as little ones. I gave this book as an adult gift to a person who is a cat advocate. We often read it several times in one sitting. I first heard this book read at a library story time, and I knew I had to own it! I will be checking to see if these authors have other books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
