I read a lot of good books but the great ones shine like gems among them ? to name a few: Wolf Brother
, and now... I wasn't expecting The Cat Master
to blow me away; the blurb just sounded silly.
Bonnie Pemberton has populated her story with the animals you expect to find in an urban landscape: feral and domesticated cats and dogs, and wild animals such as birds, reptiles, and possums. This adventure story is told from the various animals' points of view. The characters range from the self-centered lizard named Orie, who never helped anyone until a cat's cry shook his world, to a selfless friendly dog named Tenba, who would help a cat in need if it asked for it, and a possum, who often thinks with his stomach and forgets about any consequences that may arise by chasing that runaway bug. And the cats? Well, wow... How do I describe all of them? Just get the book and enjoy it.
