Verne, Nick's cat, is enthusiastic about reading words and the captivating world of story. This cat even gets his own library card (and borrows so many books)!! Stevenson, Verne's other cat, isn't quite taken by the written word. When Nick discovers Stevenson's drawings and becomes aware of his cat's fascination with pirates, Nick learns that Stevenson just wasn't being presented with stories that sparked his interest. A delightful read-aloud for emergent readers, and book lovers of all ages. Berube's art is absolutely charming!
