That Cat Can't Stay

Foreword Review — Mar / Apr 2010

A winning tale, in verse, about a family that keeps finding cats that need a home, and a tough-talking dad whose heart wins out every time. As the number of cats in the family keeps rising, the repetition and expansion of Dad’s rant gets funnier and funnier, and begs for chanting in unison, louder and louder, by reader and listeners. The illustrations add to the humor while making it clear that everyone, including Dad, has a lot of love to give and room for one more soul.
