Calling all kittens! A little girl longing for a pet of her own gets a bit more than she bargained for in this cat-filled celebration. A small girl wants a cat of her very own: a furry fluffball to cuddle, just like the one in her book or her grandmother's cat, Hector. So she lays a trail: balls of wool, saucers of milk, cardboard boxes, and anything else that could lure a feline friend.
And who should arrive the next morning but somebody furry, warm, soft, and so very purry. It's Hector, along with dozens of other cats. The girl is happy as can be, but when "LOST CAT" posters show up all over town, she realizes her plan might have worked a little too well. Will she have to give all the cats back? Will she ever get a cat of her own to love?
Sweet and playful, Michelle Robinson's tale of wish fulfillment will strike a chord with anyone who has ever yearned for a pet, while Chinlun Lee's exuberantly illustrated felines will delight cat lovers of all ages.
"In a series of stately group portraits, Lee paints the visitors as distinct, furry individuals, taking tender care with each one. A day of cuddling follows until a wall of 'Lost Cat' posters clarifies many of the felines’ provenance and reveals that the girl’s pleasure has caused consternation elsewhere. She returns them, calmly — all but one. Robinson and Lee make the girl’s longing easy to understand and her joy a pleasure to share." — Publishers Weekly
