Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Beginning with Amanda's search for her missing cat, this rambling fantasy quickly becomes a leap into a world of flying cats; streams of milk; and mysterious, glowing eyes that shine in the dark. Childlike illustrations in various sizes are placed on brightly colored pages, enhancing their impact and appeal. Felines of different colors and sizes are depicted in widely different settings, from the alley cats of an urban wasteland to the purring kittens of a magical woodland. The text seems to have followed the creation of the artwork rather than vice versa, as it seeks to weave together the adventures of these animals. Like Dave Pilkey's When Cats Dream (Orchard, 1992) or Lane Smith's The Big Pets (Viking, 1991), this book will find a select audience who will appreciate the engaging illustrations and the glimpse into another, very different world.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
