Publisher Comments:

My father is always talking about how a dog can be very educational for a boy. This is one reason I got a cat.

Dave Mitchell and his father yell at each other a lot, and whenever the fighting starts, Dave's mother gets an asthma attack. That's when Dave storms out of the house. Then Dave meets Tom, a strange boy who helps him rescue Cat. It isn't long before Cat introduces Dave to Mary, a wonderful girl from Coney Island. Slowly Dave comes to see the complexities in people's lives and to understand himself and his family a little better.

Synopsis:

"The thoughts, feelings, and activities of an adolescent boy in contemporary New York City, perceptively revealed in a skillfully written narrative".--Booklist.--The New York Times. 1964 Newbery Medal; ALA Notable Children's Books 1940-1970.
