Archie, Cupcake, Oliver, Valentine... the cat who lives on Blossom Street is called something different by everyone, and loved by all. But there is one house on the street that he hasn't visited yet... In this sweet story, Katie Harnett explores how one well-loved cat can change a lonely woman's life and bring a small community together.
Harnett has created a lovely reminder of the importance of noticing the loneliest, the neediest, in our midst. It is a necessary, touching reminder that will resonate for young and old, paired with warm, expressive, detailed illustrations that depict a beautifully diverse neighborhood.-Hannah DeCamp, "Avid Bookshop"
