Overview

A wonderful collection of stories from an award-winning author. Never take a cat for granted!

Meet Baraka, the cat who plays chess more cunningly than any human; Pescato, who becomes mayor for a day and dupes royalty; and other cats who befriend, aid, and outwit their human companions. Brought to life with all of Lloyd Alexander’s trademark wit and style, these felines will make sure that you never look at a cat in quite the same way!

“Brilliant storytelling with an old-world flavor.”—Booklist
