About the Author:

PAUL GALLICO (1897-1976) was born in New York City and studied at Columbia University. After serving in the First World War he became a journalist with the New York Daily News where he enjoyed particular acclaim for his sports writing. In 1936 Paul Gallico moved to Salcombe in South Devon where he became a full time writer, living in a house on a hill with his Great Dane and twenty-three cats. He became a notable war correspondent during the Second World War. Among Paul Gallico's best known books are The Snow Goose (1941), a classic story of Dunkirk, and The Poseidon Adventure (1969), which was made into a very successful film. His magical stories about animals, particularly cats, are enduring favourites. These include Jennie (1950) and Thomasina (1957).

Review:

Praise for `Thomasina':"This is a story that cats would love as much as I do!" Michael MorpurgoPraise for `Jennie':"'Jennie' makes you really and truly feel as if you've lived in the world of cats." Vivian French
