Once, not so very long ago, there was a small cat without a name. He also had no home, apart from a cardboard box under a motorway bridge in the middle of the big city.
A lovely childrens story about love and acceptance.
This was a lovely book that crosses the cultures with a stray cat visiting an indian, an italian and an asian restuarant for leftover food. After all these nights crossing town and visiting restaurants he finally visits a house and is met with the love of two children and some REAL food.... tinned cat food. The children keep him and call him 'no name'.
When I read this book to my four year old he enjoyed it. His question at the end was "Did they call him no name for real?"
I wouldnt say it is the most exciting book my children have read but it did hold their interest and they have wanted to read it again.
The illustrations are lovely and the children thought the wee kitty was very cute. At the end they wanted to know if we could get a kitten.
Not sure that I would pick it up in the shop and straight away think I would pay over $20 for it. Maybe $16 for such a simple short story.
