A wonderful collection of stories from an award-winning author. Never take a cat for granted!

About the Author:

Born on January 30, 1924, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, storyteller Lloyd Alexander spent his childhood filling his imagination with fantasies about other lands and eras. For ten years of his writing career, Alexander wrote for adults, then changed gears and wrote fiction for young people. Lloyd Alexander has received a Newbery Medal, a Newbery Honor Award, a National Book Award, and several IRA-CBC Children’s Choice Awards. He is also the author of many ALA Notable Children’s Books and School Library Journal Best Books of the Year.

From Publishers Weekly:

Alexander works his usual magic with these eight tales of remarkable felines: in one, Pescato and a mayor trade places to outwit a royal villain; in another, Quickset tricks a greedy grocer with the promise of a golden egg. Ages 8-12.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
