About this title


After a rat takes over his castle, a canine old lord knows there is only one way to get rid of such a bully. He needs a samurai fast-a samurai cat! A fierce samurai arrives and draws his sword, ready to vanquish the upstart rodent. He charges toward the venomous vermin... Splat! The defeated cat slinks away. Next, a samurai cat in full armor takes on the job. Splat! The second cat slinks away. Then an old, toothless, ragged-tailed cat limps to the castle, promising to chase away the invader. What could this ancient cat possibly offer a humiliated dog with a giant pest problem on his paws?

About the Author:

"Like Hokusai, I am an old man mad about drawing," says the illustrator, Mordicai Gerstein, and he pays homage to the famed Japanese artist through his witty illustrations for this book, which are also inspired by Japanese anime. A starred "School Library Journal" review described his artwork for Eric A. Kimmel's "The Jar of Fools: Eight Hanukkah Stories from Chelm" as "brightly drawn and silly as the stories themselves." He lives in Massachusetts.

Eric A. Kimmel is the celebrated author of Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, also set in Ukraine. He lives in Oregon.
