Elisha Cooper may have little words in her stories, but each word speaks meaningfully and has a meaning equivalent to a hundred words. Basically, this is a true tale of friendship good enough to move on for generations. In this book, a lonely, big cat who lives alone gats a new cat. Together, they play and eat and sleep, and give each other company. But friendships may not last forever, and the big cat leaves the little cat. The little cat, now a bigger cat, gets a new cat member, and it is up to the bigger cat to pass their friendship down.
