Reviews & Honors for Cat up a Tree


"Cat lovers will go wild for this work, as will poets and dreamers. Ages 8-up." 
  -starred review, Publisher's Weekly

"With their magical grace, wide range and easy humor, the verse brings to mind the work of Robert Louis Stevenson. Each poem is a gem, but the sum is even greater than its parts."
