What a blessing it was to find this book on Amazon. It has been out of print for over 1/2 a Century. It was one my mother read to me as a little girl. Now to find a copy of it again after all these years has brought back so many memories. As old as it is, it's in beautiful condition and is in great shape. It will be read again and again.

This book is old and the story sweet. If you like cats (which my daughter does!) it's even better. A old man on an island who has a simple life is lonely and wishes he had a cat for a companion. After a storm takes his home, he finds a large boat has washed ashore with everything he needs, including a few new purring companions.

I remember this book from my childhood and read it to my son when he was small and now am buying it for his child.
The story of aloneness on an island and finding joy in the company of animals is delightfully simple and universally engaging.

Recently, my best friend became pregnant. She wanted to build a library for her child. I thought my contribution could be some of the books I loved as a child. This book is fantastic. A wonderful story with calm surprise and a good ending.

This book was one of my absolute favorites when I was little. It was one of the books we received being a member of the Weekly Reader club. The illustrations are adorable and the story just as sweet as can be.
