It all started with a little blue cat named Hester. Then along came Sam, and it was love at first sight? and lots of little Sams While the cats are perfectly happy stampeding through Uncle Andy's art studio and frolicking among his soup boxes, the humans know things have to change. So Uncle Andy devises a brilliant plan to make his cats famous?and easier to find homes for.

James Warhola's childhood memories of trips to New York City to visit his uncle, Andy Warhol, inspired this warm, funny story of the famous artist's house full of cats. Kids will pore over the illustrations trying to spot all the Sams, as well as some very clever mice.

Scrambling around an eccentric uncle's tall, skinny row house would be a treat for any kid — all the more so if your uncle were Andy Warhol, and the house, his art studio. James Warhola is just that nephew, and in a new book, called Uncle Andy's Cats, Mr. Warhola writes of the fun he had visiting his Uncle Andy. Host Scott Simon speaks with Weekend Edition's ambassador to the world of kiddie literature, Daniel Pinkwater, about a new book for children called Uncle Andy's Cats. More at NPR.org
