KIRKUS REVIEW

Charlotte Fairlee was the only Fairlee who loved cats. Dissatisfied with the family's Old English Sheepdog, she wanted a cat more than anything. One day on a hillside, she sees a cat; she discovers that the cat goes by the name of Felicia can talk. Temporary transmigration results in a new girl friend for Charlotte; the ""girl"" has strange habits: chasing mice, prowling at night, etc. Charlotte keeps Felicia's secret, and in the end, Felicia returns to her catly form, content with the company of her mother, a grocery store cat. The author of Janetta's Magnet (1963, p. 238, J-92) and other strong titles has created a bizarre fantasy. It is similar in subject to David evern's The Wild Valley (1963, p. 556, J-188) but not nearly as strong in construction.
