Charming stories about a shy little black cat called Jenny Linsky, who finds a home with Captain Tinker (who gives her a red scarf), and friendship and acceptance in the Cat Club. ( )

I read this book as a little kid (elementary school), and forty-odd years later, I still remember it with much love. Since Jenny is a female cat, I suspect boys might have a harder time getting into this book than girls would -- still, the other cats are a mix of male and female, and the plots/situations could appeal to both genders.

Wonderful stories about Jenny Linsky, a little black cat who lives with her sea-captain owner. This cat is very shy and this story follows the cat attempting to make friends.

Shy kids could definetly relate to this book. They can see that the cat is shy just like them, so then they feel less weird about being shy! ( )

The Cat Club stories were a hit with my 3 1/2 year old, who is just learning to sit through chapter books. The stories are peppered with adorable illustrations which helped hold his interest and the language and content wasn't too much for him, so it's a great first chapter book for a preschooler. The stories are simple, yes, but that's why they're great: Jenny and her adventures are mainly about the kinds of feelings humans deal with every day, like jealousy, fear, and shyness. ( )

Second attempt to read Jenny stories. ?áStill don't appreciate them, or the art.
Note that they were first published starting in 1944 - but they don't feel dated too much; to me it's more a feeling of childish, primitive writing style and simplistic stories.

The edition I read is a Scholastic paperback with:
The Cat Club
Jenny's First Party
When Jenny Lost Her Scarf
Jenny's Adopted Brothers
How the Brothers Joined the Club ( )
