About this title


A house cat with a longing to visit the park across the street "escapes" her comfortable apartment, meets a streetwise cat, and is given a tour that results in a hair-raising encounter that sends her rushing home to stay--at least until tomorrow.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3 Alice, a pampered calico cat confined to a third-story apartment, longs for a bit of excitement. Squeezing out a partly-open window, she creeps along ledges and jumps bravely down to the ground. She meets a friendly tiger cat, and the two explore the park happily until a mean, toothy dog routs them. Alice slips back up to her window, where an anxious little girl greets her with joy, and she curls up for a rest, satisfied with her adventure. Both writing and illustrations harmonize perfectly in tone. They are so gentle that the sleek, sweet-natured cats never seem threatening to the birds, fish, and squirrels that they investigate. Little children are allowed to caress them gleefully. The soft, warm-toned watercolors add interest to the story as they show the cats from a variety of perspectives in appealingly typical activities. Low-keyed and gently satisfying. Patricia Pearl, First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, Va.
