About the Author

A former creative director in an international advertising agency, Roger Mader now lives in the Normandy countryside with his French wife, Martine, and Pete, the little cat who adopted them.


As handsome as the big-eyed tabby that stares out from its cover.
--The New York Times Book Review
Though the storytelling is gentle and the realistic illustrations soft-edged, there's plenty of emotional force in Lost Cat.
--The Wall Street Journal

Given the appealing subject matter, tightly focused visual storytelling and feel-good resolution, Slipper's adventures will likely find an enthusiastic audience, particularly among feline fanciers.

A neatly told story, sweet without being saccharine, that charms from beginning to end.
--School Library Journal

The delightful story of a cat named Slipper that gets separated from its owner.
--Publishers Weekly

This tale of a lost cat who searches for someone new to 'adopt' should appeal to every child with a pet (or hoping to have one).

There are dozens of lost pet stories but this one skillfully utilizes an intriguing cat's-eye-perspective, vivid illustrations, and a happy (if unrealistic) ending to satisfying effect. Succinct, sonorous text also makes for smooth reading aloud.
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
