THE FIRE CAT

illustrated by

KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the story of a little cat with big ideas. Unable to adjust to the routine of domesticity, Pickles is the dilemma of all the neighborhood cats and people. And then, one day, friendly Mrs. Goodkind helps him find his place in society as an apprentice fireman. From then on, Pickle's impulses find a healthy outlet and he turns his excessive energies toward the good of the community. A splendidly independent Pickles emerges from the text and illustrations by the author of the Jenny Linsky books. Suspense, humor, and compassion are all here cut to the size of the very youngest reader.
