KIRKUS REVIEW

We haven't counted but we'll believe a thousand, and there are almost that many gables and turrets in the eccentrically elegant Victorian ""castle"" where old Miss Willoughby lives surrouned by crowded tenements. Madden's pictures in pinks and oranges add a jaunty air to the story of the stand-offish old lady who begins to smile and then to help her poor neighbors after she acquires a houseful of stray cats, and who is in turn aided by her new friends when the health department threatens to evict her feline boarders. As a social prescription it's less than persuasive, but the densely populated pictures make all this doing unto others an attractive proposition.
