The story here is charming--a girl has moved to a new home (with her kitten and dog) and a big Maine Coon cat is hanging around the house. The cat ends up joining the family. The illustrations are great too. I love the end papers, showing the cat trotting happily through a birch forest, and I love the double page spread with the girl sleeping with both cats. The coon cat is in the same position that my cat Clarence loves, in the crook of the girl's arm. I'm not quite as thrilled with the sing-songy rhyming of the book, but still, it makes me want to go get me a Maine coon cat.
