Wow! Wow wow wow wow! I really loved this book! The adventure and love in this classic historical fiction tale will astound you, and Beth Webb writes with compassion and joy. This book will excite any child. The main character, Fleabag the Alley cat is covered in fleas, three-legged and (I quote this from the blurb) has serious cattitude! I recommend it to any fans of Claire Barker, Debbie Harter and Eric Carle.
