A wonderful collection of stories from an award-winning author. Never take a cat for granted!

Meet Baraka, the cat who plays chess more cunningly than any human; Pescato, who becomes mayor for a day and dupes royalty; and other cats who befriend, aid, and outwit their human companions. Brought to life with all of Lloyd Alexander’s trademark wit and style, these felines will make sure that you never look at a cat in quite the same way!

“Brilliant storytelling with an old-world flavor.”—Booklist

About the Author:

Born on January 30, 1924, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, storyteller Lloyd Alexander spent his childhood filling his imagination with fantasies about other lands and eras. For ten years of his writing career, Alexander wrote for adults, then changed gears and wrote fiction for young people. Lloyd Alexander has received a Newbery Medal, a Newbery Honor Award, a National Book Award, and several IRA-CBC Children’s Choice Awards. He is also the author of many ALA Notable Children’s Books and School Library Journal Best Books of the Year.

From Publishers Weekly:

Alexander works his usual magic with these eight tales of remarkable felines: in one, Pescato and a mayor trade places to outwit a royal villain; in another, Quickset tricks a greedy grocer with the promise of a golden egg. Ages 8-12.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
