"Part of what makes Jenny so appealing is that her emotional trials and triumphs mirror those of the preschool and school-age set as they work to behave, to make and keep friends, or to adjust to the arrival of a new sibling....The other part is that although the cats are in many ways anthropomorphized, Averill's details are careful and concrete. For example, the cats talk among themselves and can ice skate and dance and drive, but they must communicate with humans like any ordinary cat, by rubbing against their legs or looking beseechingly into their eyes." —Orlando Sentinel

The illustrations are simple, the plot is basic, but all the kids I've shared this with have loved the story of Jenny and her brothers and their trip around the world. I will say that changes in the world since the book was written sometimes needed a bit of explanation, but the story has aged remarkably well. It went over much better than the mass-produced, written-by-committee stuff they find when they visit the bookstore nowadays.
