Tabby tells of big and warm houses, meals everyday, soft beds to sleep in and people who stroke your fur. While the other cats laugh at the stories, Alleycat believes. His belief is so strong that he sets out to find one of those big warm houses.
Alleycat is an engrossing, delightful story about a cute cat who never stops believing in the possibility of a happier life. Though the beginning is sad, the ending will warm the hearts of children and adults alike. The story is told in simple prose and is accompained by lively, whimsical illustrations by award-winning Oregonian artist K.C. Snider. This is a must read for children who love cats. Alleycat also carries an important message that can be discussed with kids: the importance of following your dreams and the power of hope. This book will make a fine addition to any home, school or library shelf.
