Pussifur and the Search for Home

SKU: 15385


This book is a charming, suspenseful true story from Nantucket Island, featuring a cat named Pussifur and his family who spend summers on Nantucket. After years of enjoying the pleasures of the island, Pussifur and his family are presented one summer with a life-changing challenge. How the family and people on Nantucket respond to Pussifur’s dilemma is one theme of the story. Pet lovers everywhere will relate to the challenges faced by the story's family. Like the winding, windy course taken by Nantucket’s famed Rainbow Fleet of sailboats, this story has lots of twists and turns and choices to make—with an ending that might surprise readers. The book is ideal for reading to young children as they follow along with the forty color illustrations. But at 70 pages it is substantial enough that young readers will enjoy reading it on their own.

Impressionistic photo illustrations give this tale a wonderful ambiance that will charm everyone with fond memories of Nantucket summers.
