Synopsis: Prowlpuss is a tough, rough, gruff cat, an out-on-the-town cat! And where is Prowlpuss off to tonight with his wooing and hullabalooing? With rolling rhymes and bold paintings, Gina Wilson and David Parkins create a rugged, raucous tomcat that readers won't soon forget. Full color.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 3-The middle of this picture story in verse is missing. Its beginning and end don't fit together. Prowlpuss starts in word and pictures as a battle-scarred villain. He mouses and rats the alleys with no-nonsensical remorse. When cyclical lust sets in, he murders the night with yowls to a pure white, lap cat that never comes near. Prowlpuss does not slink back into an alley, however. Suddenly he's got a home and a lady who loves and hugs him. What started as a feral natural force in catdom wimps out on her quilt. The poet is quoted on the flap copy: "Prowlpuss is about that yearning one always has for the unobtainable." This cat as described and illustrated is the wrong vehicle for that elusive, adult insight. The watercolors are powerful evocations of night at a one-eyed cat's level. The book is the illustrator's showcase propped on a wobbly story in rhyme.
