"I think these books about Jenny, the black Greenwich Village cat, are delightful, and the fourth in the series which started with The Cat Club is again good fantasy, and an amusing story of how timid Jenny found she had courage to help a friend." —Kirkus Reviews
"Told with the same mingling of gentle fun and fantasy, the same precision of prose, which has distinguished the other stories in this series." —The New York Times

As I've expanded the Jenny library, though, I've learned to pay attention to the page info. "Jenny and the Cat Club" is an extensive collection of Jenny stories and is quite substantial for a young reader. Both The Hotel Cat (New York Review Children's Collection) and Jenny Goes to Sea are longer works. But, this present volume is barely a short story and had to be bulked out with big type and illustrations to reach 32 pages. The same is true for The School for Cats (New York Review Children's Collection). So, you might want to be alert to that.
That said, (and alert given), this story of Jenny's "Moonlight Adventure" is a fine addition to the series. You pretty much have to know who Jenny is and who the other characters are, though, because the episode just starts right up. Jenny volunteers to perform a dangerous task in order to help a fellow cat and has to use her guile and all of her resources to pull it off. For a young reader the story is suspenseful and satisfying.Read more ›
It has all the elements of a great children's book - cats, a plot with a beginning, middle, and end, and a moral lesson that isn't in your face. The illustrations are great and there are a number of different personalities that any reader could relate to. If you have children in early elementary school, or for that cat-lover in your life of any age, buy this book and all the others in the Jenny series!
I've gone back and read some children's books and discovered they really didn't hold up so well. I may get some thumbs down, but there are Pooh stories that I now find way too precious to be enjoyable. Jenny's stories seem more simple but I found them to be emotionally sound and comforting.
I don't give a lot of five star reviews, but Jenny gets one!
Also, the format and binding are great quality. We'll be keeping these around forever!

These are very cute stories, but after a while, the novelty wears off. Probably great for younger children, as they are a bit precious.Published 13 months ago by LibraryRose
I loved these books as a child and was thrilled to buy them for my niece. I really hope she loves them as well.Published on May 23, 2013 by mairin
My granddaughter loved the first story about Jenny so I thought she would like this collection. The book definitely lacks illustrations, and is really quite boring. Read morePublished on May 24, 2010 by Holly Greenfield
