I was thrilled to see this has been reissued! This is the first book I remember needing to own. I was so worried someday I would not be able to find it at my library! Peter Brown is a young boy who desperately wants to have a cat. See why I was hooked right from the start? Nanny says absolutely not. What a mean nanny! Peter sees a chance to save a stray from a terrible fate, but ends up having a serious accident of his own. All is not lost. When Peter wakes up, he finds he has turned into a cat himself! Luckily he meets Jennie, a streetwise survivor. She and Peter have many adventures, some of which are not very nice. Think Wizard of OZ for a cat instead of Dorothy. I loved it forty years ago, and still have fun reading it now.
