Just got this book as a gift to myself. First edition, signed by author w/dust jacket. In great condition. Have a penchant for children's books about cats. (Crazy cat lady that I am) The pencil-charcoal illustrations in this book are absolutely beautiful. Sweet story from another time. Big sigh--I'm such a softie!!

This is a sweet little book about the life of a cat who is now a mama. The illustrations are beautiful and incredibly life-like. Cat-lovers, especially, will not want to miss out on this simple but charming story.
