BOOK REVIEW

THE HOTEL CAT by Esther Averill
Released: Nov. 26, 1969

"Quite up to scratch—no one could reasonably find 'fault with the services of the Hotel Cat."
Like the Royal Hotel where Tom finds refuge and rises to eminence, this has a certain musty sweetness—it's cheering to find that the members of The Cat Club (founded 1944), "forever friends," are forever true to character. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Dec. 10, 1970

"Although Miss Averill communicates her respect for Callot, neither the exposition nor the illustrations back her up."
It looks like an art book but it has little of substance to say about art; it reads like a rather young biography but it has little to tell—since there is little known—about Callot's personal life. Read full book review >

CAPTAINS OF THE CITY STREETS by Esther Averill
Released: Nov. 22, 1972

"This is a flashback to The Cat Club's early days before the arrival of Jenny, and though the club's Rules and Regulations and tea party frolics which began back in the 1940's don't much resemble the activities of backyard felines we know, previously recruited fans will find the initiation of these two mavericks one of the organization's more worthwhile ventures."
The socialization of a pair of street-wise tramps, Sinbad and the Duke, begins when they move into the neighborhood of Little Old New York and are drawn into the Cat Club through their big brotherly concern for the young dancing cat Macaroni. Read full book review >
