Born in an alley, Mrs. Jane Tabby’s kittens all had wings. Sent off to the country to fend for themselves, Harriet, Thelma, James and Roger fly to the woods, discovering predators, food and the beginnings of friendship with a girl and a boy. These are true friends to a cat, wings or no wings, because they say, “‘I will never never never ever catch you, or cage you, or do anything to you you don’t want me to do.'”
Ursula K. Le Guin’s fantasy series A Catwings Tale begins strong with short chapters and intricate illustrations by S. D. Schindler and will have special allure for cat-lovers.
