The Cat in the Window is a compilation of stories (each chapter a story), edited by Callie Smith Grant. Since each chapter is in itself a short story about a different cat, you can pick this book up and start anywhere and read for as long or as little as you like. I tend to like book-length stories, but this one was recommended to me, so here t'is.
Ms. Grant gives us a short bit of info about each contributing author. Some chapters are taken from full-length books, such as the excellent book about Kit Kat and Lucy by Lonnie Hull DuPont. More than one writer has contributed a few stories. It's interesting to compare the writer's styles. As in all compilations, there are some you will love, some will make you laugh out loud, some will make you feel as if the writer is being a little "too cute". I don't recall any out and out sad stories in this book. If you're looking for book featuring cats, that you can pick up and set down without committing a whole evening, this book might be just the one. Available on Amazon (used), in used book stores, in the library and probably on Kindle.
If any of you gentle readers has read a good cat book that hasn't been already reviewed, please shoot me an e-mail and tell me the title and author. firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm fast running out of good kitty books to report on. I've read a couple that were so bad I absolutely refuse to report on them.
LFFAC adventures, stories and maybe even a cute cat video every now & then.
