On his way to hang out with the neighborhood kids, Archie very innocently greets a stray cat who follows him and gets in the way. The cat ruins everything - Archie's street show is a mess and his audience drifts away. But things aren't all bad: when Archie goes, the cat follows him all the way home, too!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Linnea Hendrickson
The new cat on the block creates havoc during Archie and Peter's planned entertainment for their friends. "You're well rid of a cat like that," says Archie's mother. But, the accompanying picture shows the cat patiently waiting outside on the doorstep, while Archie says, "I think that cat just kinda liked me!" We suspect this story is not really over! First published in 1970, Keats's book still looks fresh and new, its bold brush strokes, bright colors, and collages of painted paper, newsprint, and bits of fabric perfectly expressing the energy and rough edges of the inner city streetscape. The spare text that encourages the reader to make connections and interpretations also seems just right for today's young readers. 1998 (orig.
