A subtle fable that will resonate deeply with some readers. Fog Cat will always be wild, but she wants a kitten, and she wants it to have a more secure life than she does, so she temporarily adopts Hannah and her Grandpa.

I find it interesting that there's absolutely no mention of mom, dad, or grandma. The author just takes for granted that families come in all sorts of shapes & sizes, it seems, and I appreciate that.

Most of the illustrations were lovely, including those of Grandpa. But imo the artist never got Hannah quite right.

The issue of the stillborn kittens, and the fact that this is a fairly long book, cause me to recommend it for ages 5 up, not for the littlest rugrats. ( )

Heart-wrenching, but beautiful story about a young girl and a cat. Beautiful illustrations. ( )
