This nearly wordless book uses onomatopoeia and striking, bold illustrations to tell the story of a vulnerable stray cat in search of food, shelter and love. A cat enters a grocery store in search of food, but the proprietor shoos her away. A bus approaches offering shelter, but the large-handed, scary-faced driver shouts SCRAM! When another bus approaches, the cat runs in with a WHOOSH and meets a grandfatherly gentleman who changes the cat's circumstances forever. Young children will empathize with strong emotional content--hunger, loneliness, rejection; then contentment and joy--revealed through the expressive rendering of the characters. Powerful visual storytelling, perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.
