Description


A 2018 Caldecott Honor book

There was a cat
who lived alone.
Until the day
a new cat came . . .

And so a story of friendship begins, following the two cats through their days, months, and years until one day, the older cat has to go. And he doesn’t come back.

This is a poignant story, told in measured text and bold black-and-white illustrations about the act of moving on.

"Cooper's gentle tale of the loss of a feline friend is perfect bibliotherapy for those who have lost a loved pet. "—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Kids won’t have to be cat lovers to find this endearing and quietly reassuring, while young cat owners will want to tell the tale of their own feline friends."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"A gentle, loving look at the life cycle of pets; young readers will be able to gain confidence in retelling the story using the text and the pictures."—School Library Journal, starred review

the concept of the circle of life in loving contentment."—Booklist

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
