Although National Pet Week was last week, it’s never too late to celebrate. And with the five cats from That Cat Can’t Stay, it’s sure to be quite the party!

Judith Viorst, renowned author of  Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, sent us a handwritten postcard:

Thanks for letting me see That Cat Can’t Stay. It’s an absolutely adorable book – and exactly how the Viorsts once wound up with four cats.

From Waking Brain Cells, the blog of  the Menasha library:

Recommended for cat storytimes.  This is a purr-fect readaloud for any family that finds that they too seem to collect animals. I’d even recommend it happily to dog lovers.

Grab your copy and take the stray cats out to play! An online preview of the book is available here.
