"Hobo Finds a Home" is a completely adorable book! Written for children by a cat (and cats, as anyone who's ever shared a house with a cat knows, never grow up!) it combines beautiful pictures with easy to read, almost poetic at times, prose that appears to have been written in crayon. It tells the story of Hobo who runs away from home, has adventures in the wild, grows cold and lonely, runs into a 'spice kitty', and then finds a new friend, a new home and a warm spot by the fire (and what more can anyone, cat or human, ask for from life?!). It's written from the cat's point of view but is easily translatable to the lives of children who often do feel the urge to see what else is out there in the world -- Hobo's adventures (and misadventures) make a wonderful story that children will enjoy reading and parents will love to read with their children. I would recommend this book to anyone (cat lover or not) although anyone who's ever been owned by a cat will definitely want a copy! ( )
