This swift read takes one into the intimate world of Julia Child's lifelong love affair with cats - and food - on both sides of the "pond." For those who love food, or Julia, or cats, and those who enjoy all three, this is a cheerful and touching read. Clearly a work of love. ( )

Perfect, lighthearted, well-researched fluff- makes me want to move to Paris and get my own Minou! ( )

This slim little volume was completely enjoyable. The authors tell part of Julia's story that is little told, her love of cats. The book begins just as Julia and her husband arrive in France and Julia eats that fateful meal that launched a career. But this book takes her momentous life and adds what has been missing from every other bio, her cats. Marvelous! ( )

"The world knows Julia Child as the charismatic woman who brought French cuisine to America and became a TV sensation, but there's one aspect of her life that's not so familiar. Soon after the Childs arrived in Paris in 1948, a French cat appeared on their doorstep, and Julia recalled, "Our domestic circle was completed." Minette captured Julia's heart, igniting a lifelong passion for cats equaled only by her love of food and her husband, Paul. All the cherished feline companions who shared Julia's life--in Paris, Provence, and finally California--reminded her of that magical time in Paris when her life changed forever. From Julia's and Paul's letters and original interviews with those who knew her best, Patricia Barey and Therese Burson have gathered fresh stories and images that offer a delightfully intimate view of a beloved icon"--… (more)
