Amy Brantner, 100 pages. This book has three interesting stories of transformation. I would recommend this to people who enjoy the un-ordinary. The first story is about a kid who thinks his life is really boring. He meets a talking cat and decides to keep him. But he is always in envy of the cat, because it gets to sleep all day while Tom, the boy, has to go to school. The cat suggests that he and Tom switch places. Tom’s all for it!

clever, simple, and well-versed.
