Reviews

A surprise treasure!


(5 stars)

A charming, sophisticated and well-written little story for children or adults who like animals. Told from the kitten's point of view about her experiences with her cat and human families in Boston and a summer spent in Maine on a farm where animals are well-treated. Many farm cats show up for cat social gatherings during their stay in Maine. Not a dull moment with all the little adventures and descriptions. No tragic occurrences. A St. Bernard protects the kitten and gives her good advice. Well read. A feel-good kind of story. I even learned a little about pigs and chickens. Highly recommended.

Pleasant story


(5 stars)

Well read by the narrators. Pleasant story written by someone who seems to know cats quite well. Several quite humorous passages !
