Its been a LONG time since I read this book. I remembered it as a cute tale of a little boy bonding with a hurt cat. I started reading it to my daughters today. Its a wonderful read with the colorful play of words and descriptions. But its also a pretty sad story.
I guess age has changed me a little. The girls seem to be enjoying all the pictures and Olivia keeps calling the big tom cat Buckeye since his picture looks like our old boy. Abigail feel asleep in my arms by the time I got halfway through the book. Its been put aside to continue on another rainy day like it was today.
