THE CAT AND THE CAPTAIN
Illustrated by Bernice Loewenstein
The Cat is mischievous, makes trouble when he can't find it, and boasts of his badness to boot. He torments fussy Mrs. Tillie Todd and publicly challenges a neighborly tabby. To the Captain, though, the Cat is a true comrade and shipmate. For when danger threatens, the Cat, despite his bad ways, sniffs it out and realizes it's up to him to save the household.
This is Elizabeth Coatsworth's first book for children. Originally published in 1927, it already exhibited her now famous gifts as a storyteller and poet, and her tremendous affection for all living beings.
ELIZABETH COATSWORTH is considered one of the truly distinguished writers for children of this century. In 1931 she received the Newbery Medal for The Cat Who Went to Heaven. The author of more than sixty books for young readers, she was honored as first runner-up for the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1968, the only international award given for an author's complete work.
