About the Author
Praise For Jenny Goes to Sea…
"We never can get enough of Jenny, one of our favorite literary cats. She has style, verve, and the gentlest way of having a good time. We welcome heartily the account of her trip around the world." —New York Herald Tribune
"Part of what makes Jenny so appealing is that her emotional trials and triumphs mirror those of the preschool and school-age set as they work to behave, to make and keep friends, or to adjust to the arrival of a new sibling....The other part is that although the cats are in many ways anthropomorphized, Averill's details are careful and concrete. For example, the cats talk among themselves and can ice skate and dance and drive, but they must communicate with humans like any ordinary cat, by rubbing against their legs or looking beseechingly into their eyes." —Orlando Sentinel
