Format: Hardcover
This was a favorite check-out at the Public Library for my two toddlers until we moved. It was a worn older copy and I could not get a new copy because it was out of print. But the story and pictures stood the test of time. The pictures where very detailed and warm and cozy. It was a favorite for me to read aloud to them and as children are the best critics this has to be in their top 10 as childhood favorites 10 years later. The story was a simple story of an Old lady who lived by the sea and took care of her cats and how on a windy day the cats took care of her.

My Aunt Margaret gave me this book when I was eight years old (now 29) and I am sorry to hear that it is out of print. It is a beautiful story about an old woman and her seventeen cats. Through very simple language and ideas, it illustrates the notion that one is never alone as long as they are open to companionship. I loved this story as a child and appreciate it even more as an adult. The illustrations are sweet and beautiful...

Margaret Wise Brown never disappoints her readers. This is a nice length book for sitting down and reading to children, it is sweet and the words are soothing like Brown's other work. The ending is comfy. Very nice.

Margaret Wise Brown is such an enjoyable classic picture book author. If you like cats, I recommend this book. I loved the storyline of a little old lady having many cats that she enjoys and ends up in bed with a toothache. Margaret Wise Brown really showed in this story that she loved and knew cats herself, as she had a cat curl up with the woman with the toothache in the story and begin to soothe her with his warmth and purr.
