"Esther Averill's collection of Jenny Linsky books deserves special mention. ...Told in clear, simple language that will appeal to younger children, all of these stories are delightful and festooned with simple illustrations every few pages that enhance, but never dominate, the melodious text." —The San Francisco Chronicle
"Averill colors her stories with abundant flights of clever fancy… But the nonchalance with which she delivers these makes them as real as her grounding details…Children will find Jenny’s lessons about emotions and behavior helpful and reassuring." —Christina Schwarz, The Atlantic Monthly
"The grace and charm of these little books are not only for children. In wording, illustration, and design they offer to people of all ages a short interview of pure delight." —The Saturday Review
"There is a realness about Jenny, as well as a demure charm, that gives these annals of her doings a distinction lacking in many a more pretentious effort." —The New Yorker
"In Jenny readers meet the perfect friend—an honest, fun-loving, and loyal playfellow and comrade-in-arms. How good to have Jenny back in print.” —Leonard S. Marcus, author of Storied City: A Children’s Book Walking Tour Guide to New York City

My grandmother sent me the first Jenny Linsky books before I was old enough to start school. My parents read them to me--at first. For the rest of his life my Dad said that he, too, adored Jenny Linsky because all he had to do was put me in his lap, open the book, and turn the pages. I did all the rest.
Years ago, before internet use was common, I asked a woman who owned a children's bookstore if she carried the Jenny Linksy books. She condecendingly told me that she never heard of them. No wonder that store went out of business.
Later, when I went online and tried to find the books, all I could find were rare collectors copies.
I'm thrilled to see these reprinted. I owe Jenny for a lifetime of happy reading.
These stories are sweet, full of adventure and fun, while reinforcing core values such as friendship, courage and selflessness. My daughter and I highly recommend this collection for all cat-loving kids! (We've even ordered a copy for her school library.)
I'm eager to get my hands on a copy and share it with my future kids.
