Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fanciful nautical adventure stars a winsome cat named Zoom who stays indoors paddling in the sink or sailing in the bathtub all night when other self-respecting cats are out mousing and howling at the moon.

When, with the turn of a large wheel, mysterious Maria launches him on a wonderful sea voyage, the first of Zooms adventures begins.
