HOUSE CAT

Barbara's new cat Hummer isn't allowed in the house because Mother is allergic to animal fur, and that's just about all there is to this sober, deliberately paced tale of Hummer's stratagems to work her way indoors and Barbara's resentment and eventual acceptance of a compromise home in the garage for her pet. Aimed at children young enough to find the dairy farm setting and the occasion of Hummer's kittening intriguing, this picks up some emotional inflection from Berson's warm, informal black and white drawings. Slight but agreeable.
