You don't have to like cats in order to love this Newbery Honor Book. When a kindly old man sets out to bring his wife a cat, he doesn't find any cats. . . until he comes to a hill with hundreds of cats. Thousands of cats. Millions and Billions and TRILLIONS of cats! And of course, how can he pick out just one? Once at home, however, the cats have a brutal battling to decide who gets to stay.
