Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A stray feline snuggles its way into the heart of a woman reluctant to keep it in this sweet-natured picture book from the team behind The Old Ladies Who Liked Cats. When elderly Miss Perkins collects her mail one snowy day she finds "one letter, two bills and a cat." She takes in the shivering feline, fully intending to find it a good home elsewhere. But when prospective owners come to see the cat, it has a talent for hiding-and for gradually turning Miss Perkins into a cat lover. Greene writes lightheartedly, but with the assured voice of a true cat lover, spotlighting the behaviors that endear felines to their humans. Working in a creamy palette, Krupinski depicts a cheerily appointed, cozy household gently cluttered with pillows and doilies. Children will enjoy the visual guessing game of discovering the cat's various hiding places in this most welcoming of settings. Ages 3-6. (Aug.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
A gray striped cat suddenly appears on Miss Perkins' doorstep. She puts an ad in the paper, but the cat hides each time a prospective owner comes by. Kids will have fun spotting the sly cat in Loretta Krupinski's delightful illustrations. It will be no surprise that Miss Perkins finally decides to keep this friendly, loving, brave, and very intelligent cat for her very own pet.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Miss Perkins finds a cat and takes it in, but she doesn't want to keep it. Her newspaper ad yields some interested parties, but each time one of them visits, Fitz hides. After a while, the woman grows fond of the animal and decides to give it a home. The writing is flat and not very engaging. All of the prospective owners end their visits with the same bland phrase, "Thank you anyway," making the process of finding Fitz a home completely uninvolving. There's no sense of growing affection between the woman and the cat, and there's no sense of action or real interest on the part of the people who answer the ad. The full-color artwork is filled with details-houseplants, pillows, and doilies-but it is one-dimensional and static. With so many other feline-filled picture books out there, consider this one an additional purchase.-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Miss Perkins goes out in the snow to get her mail and brings back a stray cat. Naming it Fitz, because that is the sound it made when it sneezed, Miss Perkins tries not to get too attached to the stray, and runs an ad that reads: "Wanted: Good home for fluffy cat named Fitz." Fitz, however, does not want to be adopted by anyone other than Miss Perkins, so he mysteriously disappears whenever someone answers the ad. Fitz finds his way into Miss Perkins's heart by jumping up on her lap and licking the tip of her nose, sleeping at the foot of her bed to keep her feet warm, and finally chasing a mouse out of her home. With that final act, Miss Perkins finds Fitz to be a perfectly remarkable cat. Bright and finely detailed illustrations show clearly why the cat would not leave; the elderly woman's home is as snug as they come in the detailed illustrations. Children will love this simple story of a love match forged by destiny, and aided by the occasional well-timed disappearance. (Picture book. 3-6)
