THE KITTEN WHO COULDN'T PURR by Eve Titus
ANIMALS
Released: March 22, 1991

"Lavish illustrations with nicely rendered landscapes and appealing animal characters. (Picture book. 2-6)"
From the author of the Anatole books, a simple story about a kitten who's sent away because his purrlessness seems rude; he asks several other animals in turn for help, finally learning how to wag his tail, which his small mistress (who obviously doesn't understand cats) accepts as thanks.

CHILDREN'S
Released: June 30, 1994

CHILDREN'S
Released: April 1, 1991

In a plot device that is becoming familiar, a new stepparent is the reason that a child—here it's 12-year-old Andy, in San Francisco—ventures into the streets, where he discovers that the world is more wicked than anything he has faced at home. Read full book review >
