Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

Review:

"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

Review:

"Softly-colored ink drawings add an old-fashioned tone, as do the Victorian names of the cats." School Library Journal

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.

Synopsis:

A highly acclaimed novel about the adventures of four winged tabby cats who leave the city in search of a safe place to live.

I am almost 16 years old and I still love this book so much. It tells of the life of a litter of kittens who grew wings and survived the city then made some friends.

I absolutely LOVED this book, as a child, and would highly recommend it to any parent who wants to instill a sense of adventure and creative imagination in their children. Just be sure to remind them that cats don't really have wings, and that it's make-believe. =D
