About this title


Describes the unique characteristics of nine cats who have come to a Maine barn "from somehwere else."

From School Library Journal:

K Up --Even those who are not cat aficionados should admire the humane care which Parnall has provided for the ragtag assortment of stray cats he has befriended. Beginning with Burl, a homeless waif rescued from starvation on city streets, moving on to Ives, scion of Burl and a feral cat, readers are introduced to a parade of remarkable felines. This book is not a story but rather a selection of biographical sketches that describe the motley crew of cats who, coming from "away," settled into the good life in the Parnalls' barn. Readers are sure to come to realize the wretched existence in store for abandoned cats not fortunate enough to run across someone as caring as Parnall. His distinctive style and controlled use of white space with subtle inclusion of color catch the likenesses of the cats and the elusive quality common to all felines. --Phyllis G.
