Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jenny must figure out how to save the Halloween celebrations for The Cat Club when Madame Butterfly, whose performance is always the highlight of the party, loses her nose flute. Delightful tale for any age, any time of year." —Patricia Whitbeck, The Golden Notebook Bookstore, in Booksense

"I think these books about Jenny, the black Greenwich Village cat, are delightful, and the fourth in the series which started with The Cat Club is again good fantasy, and an amusing story of how timid Jenny found she had courage to help a friend." —Kirkus Reviews

"Told with the same mingling of gentle fun and fantasy, the same precision of prose, which has distinguished the other stories in this series." —The New York Times

About the Author

Esther Averill (1902-1992) began her career as a storyteller drawing cartoons for her local newspaper. After graduating from Vassar College in 1923, she moved first to New York City and then to Paris, where she founded her own publishing company. The Domino Press introduced American readers to artists from all over the world, including Feodor Rojankovsky, who later won a Caldecott Award. In 1941, Esther Averill returned to the United States and found a job in the New York Public Library while continuing her work as a publisher. She wrote her first book about the red-scarfed, mild-mannered cat Jenny Linsky in 1944, modeling its heroine on her own shy cat. Esther Averill would eventually write twelve more tales about Miss Linsky and her friends (including the I Can Read Book, The Fire Cat), each of which was eagerly awaited by children all over the United States (and their parents, too).

This is a wonderful story, for a kid and an adult When I was little, I loved these stories. They're purr-fect (pardon the pun). Seriously, though it's a worthwhile purchase and this series is a very underrated. This is probably the best kitty book that you never heard of and i definitely suggest it as a gift for the holidays. You won't be sorry.

The Jenny books are great. I read them all to my younger son, who is "into" cats. The stories are charming and well-written, with realistic portrayals of various cats' personalities and New York city life from a bygone era.

My 7 year old son just LOVES the Jenny books and we do too. What a wonderful bunch of cats and what wonderful stories. He's hard to please so when he begs to read aloud from the Jenny books because he just has to share them you know we've found Treasures! Thank you for carrying these memorable volumes.

Also, the format and binding are great quality. We'll be keeping these around forever!
