The creator of Augustus and the author of Cap'n Dow and the Hole in the Doughnut here with another regional yarn, retold with fun and fancy, in gay rhythmic prose and joshing illustrations. Story tells how a pioneer trader brought cats to Kansas and made home sweet home for the settlers. Through daffy adventures and comic bravery, Gabe Slade marched to Kansas with his crate of cats. Children will like it and adults wont mind reading it aloud. Second in a series of picture-story-books based on authentic bits of American humorous regional folklore.
