Publisher's Description

A 2018 Caldecott Honor book

There was a cat
who lived alone.
Until the day
a new cat came . . .

And so a story of friendship begins, following the two cats through their days, months, and years until one day, the older cat has to go. And he doesn’t come back.

This is a poignant story, told in measured text and bold black-and-white illustrations about the act of moving on.

Editorial Reviews

A Caldecott Honor Book

5 starred reviews!

"With quiet grace, Cooper delivers the message that love persists through loss."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Cooper's gentle tale of the loss of a feline friend is perfect bibliotherapy for those who have lost a loved pet. "—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Kids won’t have to be cat lovers to find this endearing and quietly reassuring, while young cat owners will want to tell the tale of their own feline friends."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"A gentle, loving look at the life cycle of pets; young readers will be able to gain confidence in retelling the story using the text and the pictures."—School Library Journal, starred review

"Cooper’s thick black lines produce figures full of kinetic energy and personality. The circular nature of the story is beautifully reinforced by the repetition in both art and text, and the result is at once realistic and comforting."—The Horn Book, starred review

"In a final double-page spread the two dream happily, completing
the concept of the circle of life in loving contentment."—Booklist
