Overview

The Cat Who Walked a Thousand Miles by Kij Johnson

When a fire destroys her home and scatters her colony, Small Cat sets out to find the home of her ancestor, the Cat From the North, and to make her own name along the way.

"Johnson’s customarily elegant style and matter-of-fact narration keep the story from ever coming close to the Hello Kitty Frodo tale its title would seem to imply."--Locus

Xavon gave a slight nod, and slipped away. Kyri moved quickly, and released Shalee. Shalee found it hard to keep up with the girl, so broke into jogging. Kyri turned back to her with hatred flaming in her eyes. <br> "Move! Faster." She said. <br> "Trying!" Shalee replied. <br> They moved through many twisting corridors, and finally arrived in front of a large door. Kyri grimaced as she put a rusty key through the golden keyhole, and the door creaked open. Shalee gaped at what was inside. <p> Guns were scattered across the floor, and on one corner there was a untidy stack of bullets. On the shelf was a skeleton, jaws hanging wide in a maniac expression. Kyri spoke with a dreamy voice. "He was the one that built this up, and you will be the one living in it." She told the astonished Shalee. 'There. If she wants to escape, that should do it.' Kyri thought. She left Shalee staring after her, as she turned the lock once..twice..thrice.. <p> "Xavon. I did it." Kyri said. "This is now her home." <p> (Note:-I know this is WAAAAAY too short, but I am rubbish at writing. Wanted to give better authors chance.) <p> ~ Haunted &#8251 Spirit

The story is broken down so well, you can read it in parts to a small child and they will enjoy the experience of reading a good story over time. The story is basic but the content is rich with lessons to be learned and well described scenery. This was a fantastic immersive book.
