Rosemary and the cats all live together in an English cottage. To be sure, there's a family, too, and an enviable number of domestics, but the glowing center of the story is Rosemary and her love of all growing things in a nice unstuffy way. There's a cat, Buchie, who is the naughtiest, nicest, most mischievous cat with saucy speech habits. There are three other good cats and a very ""muffing"" kind of dog. There's a sunny garden feeling to the book, and upper-age of the read aloud level will love it, while the youngsters who can read to themselves will enjoy it too.
