About the Author:

Elisabet McHugh is the author of many other books for children.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5 From the instant that Wiggie (a.k.a. Ludwig) the cat spies a carica ture of Beethoven and his look-alike fe line, he's convinced that he's a 20th- Century descendant. He pines for fish (what the ancestor ate) and raids a neighbor's aquarium, ``records'' the master's lost concerto, and launches a private war against rock musicall of which win him a visit to the veterinary psychiatrist. Luckily for readers, he is cured in a single visit. Wiggie is windy and boorish. In first-person narrative, he describes his own activities (mostly eating, not eating, sleeping, and engag ing in condescending conversation with other household pets) in infinite detail, while other characters fail to develop. The plot moves slowly; there's little ac tion except for a midnight raid on an aquarium. When all is told, Wiggie's fe line fantasies come more than a whisker short of satisfying.
