Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In old New York City, where the streets are lit by lamplight, Mrs. Peachtree owns a tea shop on Eighth Avenue. Although she feigns dislike for the stray cat that is lurking about, she feeds and rescues him from the wheels of a wagon. So when he doesn't show up at mealtime one dark and stormy night, it is no great surprise when she searches the streets for him. Sadly, she returns home alone. The next day, though, the animal jumps out from behind some tins of tea and firmly into her heart. Watercolor illustrations provide a pleasant complement to the story. This is not new or ground-breaking material, nor does it provide more than a glimpse of turn-of-the-century life. It is, however, an acceptable example of the special kinship between humans and felines.-Susan Pine, New York Public Library
