Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There was an old man, an ol Texas boy, who lived with an uppity old cat — a cat whod rather eat potato soup than catch blackbirds, a cat who liked to sit on the bow of the old mans fishing boat like she was a hood ornament. "Fool cat," the old man would say. "You aint nobodys 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 thats 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.

Synopsis:

There once was an old man who lived with an uppity old cat. Then one day something unexpected happens, and they both learn that even the most cantankerous love can inspire acts of heroic proportions. Full color.

About the Author

Terry Farish is the author of several young adult novels. She says of THE CAT WHO LIKED POTATO SOUP, "This story began in the kitchen of our old-timer neighbor, Jimmy Fowler. My daughter and I were visiting with him there, gossiping about some village cat or other. Jimmy didnt have a cat, but he said if we got one, wouldnt we name it after him? And we did . We got a cat and named her Jimmy."

Barry Root is the illustrator of many books for children. He says, "Ive 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 humor." Barry Root lives in rural Pennsylvania with his wife (the illustrator Kimberly Bulcken Root), their three children, and a couple of useless dogs.
