Publisher's Description

A charming, nostalgic story, perfect for gift giving

When Anna sees a family of stray cats behind her parents' doll shop, she knows she must rescue them. But her papa's rules are strict: No pets allowed. Meanwhile, Anna's cousin Tania is coming from Russia to stay with Anna's family. Anna can't wait for her to arrive and become her new best friend. But when Tania moves in, she's shy and nervous, and Anna's sisters don't seem to like Tania at all. Luckily, Anna finds a creative way to use her love of dolls and cats to bring everyone together.

Editorial Reviews

"...a sweet and old-fashioned story, similar in style to Sydney Taylor's All-of-a-Kind Family, set in World War I-era New York. Sensitive readers will relate to Anna's desire to make everything right for her cousin..." — School Library Journal, starred review

"Filled with references to Jewish traditions and the rich history of tenement life in New York City, these fully realized characters could be best friends with the girls from Sydney Taylor’s All-of-a-Kind Family. A quiet treasure." — Kirkus

"...a charming period piece that capitalizes on the nostalgia for its historical era without losing its emotional resonance with young readers. The black-and-white line illustrations are pleasingly romantic, primarily featuring Anna and her siblings dressed much like a certain American Girl Doll, along with the occasional furry kitty. Between the cats, the dolls, and the cozy family drama, what’s not to love?" — Bulletin for the Council of Children's Books

"McDonough does a wonderful job of capturing Anna's thoughts and feelings and bringing the reader into her world. Anna's compassion for her cousin and the cats will endear her to readers. Fans of Fancy Nancy and the American Girl series will find this book delightful, and will be clamoring for a sequel." — Library Media Connection
