Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The bestselling Catwings series has been redesigned for Fall 2006!

Mrs. Jane Tabby's kittens assume they are the only cats with wings in the world . . . until they discover a little kitten with wings of her own living in an abandoned building that is about to be demolished. Will they be able to rescue their new friend from the dangers of the city?

Review:

"Le Guin's graceful writingespecially of the adventurous rescue of the new member of the family and in the roof sceneis sweetly illuminated by Schindler's delicately tinted drawings." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Each sentence is simple enough to tempt beginning readers, yet interesting. The text is also peppered with illustrations that will delight readers with every new page." Children's Literature

Review:

"This gently appealing story will mean more to those who enjoyed the more vigorous first book, but it is hard to resist a story that brings a terrified, lonely kitten home to a loving family. The illustrations are engaging pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor wash. A handsome little book for middle readers." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

The four winged tabby cats return to the city to find their mother, only to discover a small kitten with wings like their own.

Synopsis:

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.
