Read in January, 2012

One of the children's librarians passed this to me (everyone here knows I'm a cat person), and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a charming story about a stray cat who befriends the owner of a struggling carnival. When the a fire threatens, the cat becomes a hero. Watercolor illustrations are beautiful, and the story is wonderful. Kids will love the whimsical situations, such as descriptions of the car riding the carousel while adults will pick up on some of the more subtle and mature aspects. Friendship, family, and optimism despite hardship are themes. Recommended for children (including grown-up children) of any age.
