Review:

"The double-page scenes are large enough for all the dramatic...action, as when the beach becomes littered by half a dozen fur-flying cat fights....Cat lovers in particular will want to join the final scene of joyous dancing." Chuildren's Literature

Review:

"A feline frolic sure to amuse cat fanciers." Booklist

Synopsis:

A storm, a shipwreck,

an ongoing ocean,

then finally, finally

a deserted isle. . . .

Safety — but wait!

The fifteen swimmers

braving the waves

are, after all . . . kitties.

They are not into

cooperating

until, until

on this desert isle

they must.

Here,

from the creators

of the witty Old Cricket,

comes a wily, wise

saga of sogginess,

a feline fantasy

about drying off (elegantly),

shaping up (grumpily),

getting along (at last),

and loving it.
