Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517885492, Paperback)Mary GrandPré’s debut picture book returns!
* “HIN YU MIN is nearly done in by her own haughtiness after she spurns the kindness of her neighbors. Encountering a cat catching fish with a graceful flick of its tail, she eagerly offers the creature a home in exchange for food. Complacent once again, the old woman rudely dismisses a beggar, giving him nothing but a torn and tattered basket—naware that her beloved cat is asleep inside.
"In a dynamic debut, Grandpré’ illustrations capture every humorous nuance, even as they convey Chin Yu Min’ anguish at her own folly. Armstrong’ vigorous text is rich with imagery and regional flavor, making the ultimate reunion of the repentant woman and her faithful feline all the more endearing. A treat to be savored.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred
