Michèle Coxon is a renowned illustrator and animal artist, and her books have sold over one million copies world-wide. She has lived in Ireland and the Outer Hebrides and currently lives in Wales with eight cats, one dog and two teenage sons.From Booklist:
PreS-Gr. 2. Sam goes to the Robinsons as a kitten, and at first he's the center of attention. But as time passes, the only way Sam can get anyone to notice him is to meow for food. To stop kitty from lying on the keyboard or tearing holes in the newspaper, each member of the family (unbeknownst to the others) feeds him. Soon, Sam can't squeeze through his cat door. Attention is now paid in the form of less food and more play. The story is on the slim side, but Coxon's artwork is so outstanding it elevates this to full-charm status. The longhair calico is the star of each full-bleed watercolor picture, and rightfully so. Coxon draws Sam with such life that he almost leaps off the page. Whether Sam is asleep on the coverlet, tummy up, or batting at tree ornaments, kids will want to scoop him up. The picture of a lonely Sam staring at the door is a heartbreaker, but children will be pleased when all ends well. Smaller portions and more exercise. Who knew? Ilene Cooper
