Catwings (A Catwings Tale)by Ursula K. Le Guin and S. D. Schindler
Synopses & Reviews
The bestselling Catwings series!
Mrs. Jane Tabby can't explain why her four precious kittens were born with wings, but she's grateful that they are able to use their flying skills to soar away from the dangerous city slums where they were born. However, once the kittens escape the big city, they learn that country life can be just as difficult!
"LeGuin...has written a small gem of a book, with convincing and intriguing characters. Dark watercolor etchings by Schindler further convey the plight of these airborne felines and their seeking of a home." Publishers Weekly
"Softly-colored ink drawings add an old-fashioned tone, as do the Victorian names of the cats." School Library Journal
Now available individually in new digest-sized paperback editions, the first four books in Le Guin's magical series chronicle four young cats with wings who leave the city slums in search of a safe place to live.
A highly acclaimed novel about the adventures of four winged tabby cats who leave the city in search of a safe place to live.
