There was an old man, an ol’ Texas boy, who lived with an uppity old cat -- a cat who’d rather eat potato soup than catch blackbirds, a cat who liked to sit on the bow of the old man’s fishing boat like she was a hood ornament. "Fool cat," the old man would say. "You ain’t nobody’s prize." But when the unexpected happens, they both learn that even the most cantankerous love can lead to acts of heroic proportions. With down-home language that’s a joy to read aloud, Terry Farish tells a wry love story about an unlikely pair of curmudgeons, brought to life in glowing illustrations by Barry Root.

Terry Farish is the author of several novels for young adults. She says of The Cat Who Liked Potato Soup, "The story is based on our old-timer neighbour, Jimmy Fowler. Jimmy said he didn't have a cat, but if we got one, would we name it after him? And the idea sprang from there." Terry lives in New Hampshire, USA. Barry Root says, "I've always been pro-cat, although our house is divided on the subject. To appreciate a cat requires a certain amount of abstraction I think - and a sense of humour." Barry is the illustrator of several picture books for children. He lives in Pennsylvania, USA.
