Miss Kelly is a young and beautiful tiger cat, who can understand and speak the language of the humans. But she keeps this gift to herself until the dreadful day when the circus is in town and the tiger escapes and appears in Miss Kelly's kitchen and threatens her beloved human family. How she rescued her people and found her life work at the same time is told in endearing terms for all the family. The publishers list this for 6 to 10; we think it hits bit older, but- read aloud- is a good family story. All children who like animals will enter this engaging secret world with delight. Margaret Johnson has drawn wonderful zoo animals in illustrations.
