In this funny story, a cat moves with his owner and does not know where they are going. When they reach the new place, the cat sneaks out, so that he can return to his home, to learn that he has a new home. At first, the cat is scared, but grows to love his new home just as much. This story relates to anyone moving because it can be scary to start something new. In the classroom, I could talk to the students about moving and how it can sometimes be a good thing in the end.

I know you can't really put these things in a children's book: cat pukes; cat hides for hours without coming out; cat refuses to eat; cat claws owner in fit of terror and anxiety; cat leaves scratch marks up and down freshly-painted walls. Nonetheless, any one of these occurrences would have made this story of a cat whose family moves more realistic, and therefore more enjoyable, to me.
My 2 year old loves this book. I actually think that the pictures are not that fun, but it seems to be the layout of the book that actually gets her interested. It is about a cat who's owner moves. But the story is broken into different blocks, similar to comic strips. There is a small amount of narration, but it is mostly word bubbles from the cat.
Bandit doesn't understand why everything is changing and why his owner takes him to a new home. He runs back to his old home only to find that new people live there. Thankfully his owner finds him and brings him back. A moving story told from the point of view of the cat.
