Mrs. Lovewright is a chilly person, and she knows exactly what she needs to warm up. "There's no being cozy without a cat," she says. So she adopts an adorable kitten she names Purrly. But she soon finds herself in a battle of wills with a cat who has no intention of being cozy. Anyone who has ever lived with a cat can guess who will emerge victorious.
Called "wonderfully idiosyncratic" by Washington Post Book World, this tale by acclaimed author Lore Segal and Caldecott Medalist Paul O. Zelinsky is back in print to delight a new generation of readers.

-- Maurice Sendak
