"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
From the Inside Flap
"Jenny Linsky, the gallant heroine of these perenially endearing tales, pads through life balancing many of the same emotional ups and downs that crowd every schoolchilds day. Being a cat, Jenny does it all with enviable aplomb, and with a keen eye for her surroundings--the colorful back alleys and gardens of Greenwich Village. 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--and the august Cat Club back in session again!" --Leonard S. Marcus, author of Storied City: A Childrens Book Walking Tour Guide to New York City

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The writing is whimsical, the characters are charming, and the illustrations are a great conversation starter for a kid who sees mostly animation and computer generated graphics.
I would give this as a gift again.
