STOWAWAY CAT by Margaret S. Johnson


Email this review


In the same pattern as Sam and the Inkspot, Wilderness Pup and others, the author matches unembellished text with her photographically detailed pencil drawings to tell a Siamese cat's story. In New York, Yala escapes from her basket, boards a ship, sails to Brazil, returns to be cast ashore in a storm off North Carolina. There in the woods she has three kittens and is finally given a happy home by the Elliot family. The pat unimaginativeness has a certain literal, steadying appeal.
