Overview

Holly has a lot to deal with lately. Her mom has remarried and she has to get used to a new town, a new house, a new school, and a new stepdad. As if this isn't enough, she has to share her room with four pesky cats. Or rather, they have to learn to share their room with her. Max Cat always escapes. George Cat always disappears. Wilbur Cat eats socks. And Boo Cat is always somewhere you don't want him to be.
These cats are driving Holly crazy. She can't get her homework done, all of her socks have holes in them, and the police even pay a visit to her house all because of the cats. Can Holly and the troublesome felines ever learn to get along?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-A story about learning to share, conquering fears, and making new friends. When Holly's mom marries William, the third grader's life turns dramatically. She moves from their house in San Francisco to an apartment and has to attend a new school, make new friends, and learn to live with her stepfather's four "stupid and annoying" felines that chew her socks and barf on her pillow. Freeman's realistic story is filled with incidents in which the protagonist makes adjustments common to many youngsters. She forgets her math homework, gets scared on a high slide in the school playground, misses her best friend, and runs away after a disagreement with William. Yet with all the conflicts in her life, there is a happy ending: Holly's new teacher is understanding; her parents are relieved and empathetic when she returns home; and her new classmates can't wait to meet her crazy cats. The excellent plot development and characterization make this a good choice for beginning chapter-book readers, who will also enjoy Smith's humorous black-and-white sketches.-Denise Brna, Bentleyville Public Library, PA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    A reviewer

    This is a delightful book, full of fun but also providing a realistic and sympathetic view of a third grader as she adjusts to a new home and step dad. Coping with cats and their pranks while fitting into a new home and family are a challenge for Holly. Her settling into a new life style is presented with warmth and understanding. A reader of any age can share and understand each development. The book is a real treasure.
