Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525464492, Hardcover)Mother Holly is tired of Cat's rascally ways. When going out one day, she tells him she doesn't want to see one thing out of place in the house upon her return. Quicker than a cat can pounce, he is in trouble. One mishap leads to another and another. For, unbeknownst to the cat, Mother Holly is no ordinary granny. Her watering can produces spring showers, her bellows bring on the wind, and her popping corn makes thunder. Even when one tiny kernel is swallowed by the cat, it continues to rumble softly in his throat.
There is a lot of magic here--not only in Mother Holly's objects but also in Alexander's tart, pithy prose and Schachner's hilarious illustrations. Readers will join Mother Holly in slipping under the spell of that irresistible purring.

Warned not to get into his usual mischief, Mother Holly's cat tries to tidy up all the mess he has made while she is away.
