PreS-Gr 1-Tom Cat belongs to the house, but the families who live both upstairs and down think he belongs to them. When the Barristers move and take him to their new house, Tom Cat escapes; races past dogs, cars, and swans; tries to swim across the river; is rescued by a couple who hope he'll be a Boat Cat; and eventually finds his way back home. Young Jennifer upstairs thinks he has come back to her and the new neighbors downstairs think he is theirs. But Tom Cat is really just the House Cat. Cooper's rich watercolor illustrations and brief text catch the mood of this independent animal as well as the loneliness and displacement moving can bring about and the comfort of the familiar. Sure to please even non-cat fanciers.-Beth Irish, Orange Public Library, CA
