Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
In the ancient city of Neba there lived a cat who was lord of the temple. He was waited on hand and foot by many servants, but all he wanted was to be a regular cat. One night, he escaped from the temple and made the long journey to the seaside. There, he began to enjoy himself eating fish, wandering about, and especially playing and being loved by children. At last he found a true home. Lovely paintings of ancient times enhance this well written tale.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-This endearing tale is sure to find favor wherever cat stories are in demand. Worshipped as a god with servants to coddle him, a temple cat in ancient Egypt yearns for the freedom to live as a normal feline. So he slips away and travels until he reaches a fisherman's hut by the sea, where he discovers the humble pleasures of a "real" supper, a scratch behind the ears, and the joy of playing with children and being loved by them. If readers have regrets over the abandoned believers, there is no consolation offered, only an illustration on the back cover showing the god's empty pillow. The language is direct and spare but still descriptive, and the layout is consistent (full-page oil paintings opposite pages of text), making this a good choice for newly confident readers. The artist portrays the many moods and poses of the cat: limp, content, elegant, and cautious, to name a few, rendering this most expressive of animals successfully.-Susan Middleton, LaJolla Country Day School, CA
Hazel Rochman
Worshiped as a god in ancient Egypt, a cat longs for freedom. One day, he slips away from the hovering temple servants, travels through the countryside to the sea, and finds happiness in the love of a fisherman's family. Those who know an aloof, lordly feline may not agree that he's secretly longing for cuddly domesticity, but the idea of the overprotected creature stifled by attention will appeal to kids safe at home. Kiesler's warm paintings in shades of brown and gleaming gold capture both the splendor of the temple setting and the physicalness of the furry adventurer.
