This story of a cat let out at night and the adventures that she has because of it was entertaining, though not one of my favorite books. I understand wanting to let your cat out at night, but it seemed as though it was kind of a perilous decision to make, not keeping the cat's best interests at heart.

This is a nicely illustrated book about a cat's adventures outside at night. In many places, the narrative is more like poetry. I found the story to be quite entertaining, but our girls lost interest about halfway. They liked the ending, though.
