THIS CHARMING, CHILD-CENTRIC book offers a glimpse into a cat's exciting other life. In a little girl's fantasy, her cat sneaks away, hops a ship, and sails off to Europe And someday, when he can talk, he ll tell her all about the amazing things he discovered there . . . like whether or not British cats drink tea . . . and how he strutted down the runway in a Paris fashion show. With facts about each place the cat visits included simply in the rhyming text, and in more detail at the end (including a map charting his route), this is sure to provide a great introduction to travel.
