Review:

"A loud noise sets in motion an unexpected adventure for Homer, a quiet cat accustomed to living in a quiet house with a quiet lady. When the woman leaves the house (as she does each day), Homer's typically peaceful routine is interrupted by a startling crash that sends him leaping out of the window. He wanders through town searching for a cozy spot; it proves a challenge, resulting in funny scenes in which Homer tries to find a measure of peace at the fire station and train yard. At last, he finds an open door and a quiet building — the library — where he recognizes a familiar voice. Lindbergh's (My Little Grandmother Often Forgets) rhyming text is upbeat and rhythmic without being too bouncy, a quality that matches the personality of the title character. Wilsdorf's (Thelonious Mouse) tiger-striped Homer has a sweet smile, expressive eyes, and a penchant for lounging that make him the perfect companion and a welcome guest at his owner's place of employ. Scenes of a quaint, Victorian-looking village rendered in watercolor, ink, and collage keep Homer's outing entertaining rather than harrowing. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
