Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nana Quimby has a problem. She wants to bake a cake, but it seems her cellar is filled with water! Too much water! Nana puts a call in to the plumber, who makes a house call. After the plumber leaves and the water is gone, with just one thump, Nana Quimby has an even bigger problem: TOO MANY FROGS! First one frog comes from the basement. Then ten frogs. Then twenty, thirty, then more! Nana Quimby goes about her cake-making business. But the thumping, bumping, banging, bonking frogs become too much to ignore! With the help of some clever neighborhood kids, will Nana Quimby be able to solve her problem and enjoy her cake in peace and quiet? CROAK!

Synopsis:

Wanda G?g's enchanting tale of the very old man who went off in search of the prettiest cat in the world for his wife and returned instead with millions to choose from has become an American classic, widely recognized as the first modern picture book. First published in 1928, it was a recipient of the 1929 Newbery Honor Book Award and has gone on to sell over a million copies. With its charming illustrations and rhythmic, singsong refrain, Millions of Cats remains as beloved today as it was when it first appeared three-quarters of a century ago.

Synopsis:

Wanda Gag's enchanting tale of the very old man who sent off in search of one kitten and returned with "hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats" is an American classic. A Newbery Honor Book. Full color.
