Description

Getting a pet cat should be simple, but it isn't for Silly Lilly. At the advice of her friend Sammy, she finds herself cutting down trees, building a shed--even buying a cow in her quest for a cat. Is all this work really necessary?
Told in whimsical rhyme, Mary Ann Hoberman's delightful story follows two perfectly matched and utterly silly friends on a circuitous laugh-aloud path to a happy ending.
