I didn't enjoy this Newbery Winning book (for 1964) whose main character is a 14 year old boy Dave who lives in New York City (in a contemporary setting -- contemporary for an early 1960s publication date) with a father and mother and a tomcat named Cat.

That doesn't mean this book doesn't have merits; I myself just didn't connect to this story. Perhaps a young male reader, a cat lover, or a reader much more urban than I will connect.
