KIRKUS REVIEW

From the eminent SF author, a simple but deftly told tale about a pair of cats who comfort a little girl, Marianne, when she's in bed with the flu. "Do I have to?" asks Marianne, when Mother says she must stay in bed. Yes, but Mother sends Dr. Katz, "on eight white paws"--not one, but two cats. Philip snuggles in Fight away; Lorenzo, "The Bean," explores a bit before jumping the others in the big bed where they all fall asleep. Barrow pictures a pretty lively child who happens to be uncharacteristically heavy-eyed, in a cozy, comfortable bedroom. Slight, but charming.
