Hero is a Supercat, conscientious, reserved and manly, who keeps watch over all the cats who live in his town. And Hero's creator is master at the kind of dead pan narrative which pokes gentle fun at human traits as she amusingly adorns them with fur, meeows and waving tails. When Hero rescues a kitten named Beautiful, he and his friend Horrible- who is not half so strong minded and depends on Hero's leadership-care for the kitten. Along comes Rascal then, a cat from the outside world who tells them things they never knew before. His store of knowledge includes circuses and when one of them comes to town, Beautiful's mother is happily discovered among its personnel. Sustained humor makes this delightful reading aloud too, for the Jenny Linsky audiences.
