When a quietloving cat takes an unexpected tour of the neighborhood, he's in for some rude surprises--until he discovers the purrfect solution.
Homer is a very quiet cat. He lives in a very quiet house with a very quiet lady. But one day, while the lady is away, Homer hears a very loud sound, and out the window he goes! Poor Homer just wants to find a spot where he can curl up and be quiet, but his hometown is a surprisingly loud place. Will Homer find a bit of calm in all the noise? And will he ever find his quiet lady? Reeve Lindbergh's cheerful, rhyming text pairs with Anne Wilsdorf's charming illustrations for a story-lover's ode to everyone's favorite quiet place.
Reeve Lindbergh, the daughter of Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, has written many children's books, including NOBODY OWNS THE SKY, and MY LITTLE GRANDMOTHER OFTEN FORGETS, as well as several memoirs for adults. She lives in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.
Anne Wilsdorf was born in Angola. She is the illustrator of many books for children, including DOGS ON THE BED by Elizabeth Bluemle. Anne Wilsdorf lives in Lausanne, Switzerland, where she teaches illustration.
Lindbergh's rhyming text is upbeat and rhythmic without being too bouncy, a quality that matches the personality of the title character. Wilsdorf's tiger-striped Homer has a sweet smile, expressive eyes, and a penchant for lounging that make him the perfect companion and a welcome guest at his owner's place of employ.
