A book that can be read on many levels and enjoyed by a wide range of readers, this is a beautiful reminder that there's a seed of truth in every story.--Booklist (starred review)
"Gorgeously wrought and tenderly rendered, this feels like a labor of love that will snuggle itself deep into the hearts and minds of kids everywhere. Regardless of whether or not you even like cats, you will find much to admire and love (not necessarily in that order) in this gutsy little book."--Elizabeth Bird, Fuse 8, an SLJ Blog
"Such a gorgeous tale of friendship and an exploration of the power of story that feels both intimate and larger than life at the same time. The artwork is incredible, and I had to linger over every page to catch all the references and subtle grace notes. I'm never going to look at cats the same way again."--Charlie Jane Anders, award-winning author of All the Birds in the Sky
"Works equally well as simple animal tale, metaphysical journey, or reimagining of classic artworks."--Kirkus Reviews
Ursula Murray Husted's A CAT STORY is pure enchantment; it will pad silently toward your heart--and pounce!--Scott McCloud
"Husted delivers a thought-provoking exploration of the power of storytelling wrapped up in a charming cat package. Sure to spur discussion on how we envision and interpret stories." --School Library Journal
