Overview

Charlie, a fuzzy gray cat, walked out of the woods one evening and into Elizabeth's and Sarah's hearts. Now he sleeps on their beds, lets them dress him up in doll clothes, and laps up warm milk on chilly nights. But where does Charlie go during the day?
It's not until a storm keeps Charlie away one night that the two sisters discover his other, daytime, home. But maybe that's not such a bad thing. Because, just like Elizabeth and Sarah, Charlie has two houses, two beds, and two families who love him very, very much!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A cat comes out of the night and wins the hearts of two sisters. Charlie sleeps on Elizabeth's bed, but after his morning bowl of milk, he disappears. Then one day, Sarah and Elizabeth discover they have a lot in common with Charlie-two homes and two loving families.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- Two sisters, Elizabeth and Sarah, adopt the cat who appears on their doorstep every evening--but never during the day. Soon he is sleeping on their beds and answering to the name of Charlie.

The next day the girls discover that he lives in a house with a family on the other side of the woods, where he is called Anderson, fed by day and let out by night. They all call the cat ``Charlie Anderson,'' and realize that he, like Elizabeth and Sarah, ``has two houses, two beds, two families who love him.'' Graham's soft-toned, realistic paintings of the charming little girls and the furry gray cat are delightfully appealing, perfectly conveying the mood and message of the story. --Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ
