by Clare Turlay Newberry

Who can resist Clare T. Newberry's illustrations?She must have studied Chinese or Japanese painters, because, like them, she's able to create the essence of cat in a few strokes and with only one or two soft colors. This story, written in 1937, is about an 8-year-old girl, Chatty, and her mother, who live, apparently, in a one-room apartment.I was surprised to find, in the beginning of the story, that on Saturdays, when there is no school, Chatty is left alone while her mother goes to work.Nowadays that's considered neglect, but times were different then, and they seem to be too poor to afford much, including a babysitter.On this particular Saturday Chatty finds a Siamese kitten at her doorstep, and takes it in and feeds and plays with it all day long until her mother gets home and reminds her that the kitten must belong to someone.It does, and Chatty then becomes friends with Mr. Todd, the man who owns the kitten and the mama cat.But when Chatty learns that Mr. Todd will be moving to California right after Christmas, her world crumbles.What will she do without her furry playmate?Read and find out, and enjoy those captivating illustrations.Recommended!
