    He brightens up a neighborhood, putting smiles on many faces.  Everyone on the “special corner” keeps an eye on him to make sure he’s OK.  Just a feel-good story we all need these days!

    My 6-year-old is practicing his reading with this book, and he’s definitely improving.  Plus, he loves the story and is now wanting us to get a cat!  We’re thinking about it… Review

    Sweet tabby cat who steals the hearts of all kinds of folks at a strip mall.  Smiles all around! Review

    There are lots of cat stories out there, and this one stands out.  I’m a kindergarten teacher, and our students really liked it when we read it in class one day.  They want to see Harry go on his new adventure.

    I’m a Vet, and my cat customers and their families really get a kick out of this nice little story about a very unique cat.  It’s unusual for cats to live a life both inside and outside, particularly feral cats.  Harry surely is something special.

    LOVE this kitty.  An imaginative story of this real cat who has worked his way into the hearts of many on a corner in a nice town.  You don’t have to be a youngster to enjoy this book – I’m “of a certain age” and I love it, and have recommended it to other “children at heart”.

    Have never heard of or seen a cat like this, who lives a “double life” – inside and outside!  What fun for all the neighbors and customers to visit with him when he’s outside, and then the businesspeople get to invite him inside.  I live in North Carolina – maybe I’ll get lucky and meet up with Harry one of these days ;-)

    Our little one loves to be read to, and Harry’s story has become his latest favorite.  You can just imagine Harry on his adventure (I won’t say what it is, you’ll have to read the book to find out!), and how all of his fans and admirers are happy when he comes back to the “special corner”.  And it sounds as if he’ll be going on another adventure…

    I lost my cat not too long ago, and reading this storybook was just what I needed to put me in a better frame of mind.  The illustration of Harry even reminds me a little bit of my beloved Tommy.  Such a cute story and the “adventure” Harry takes is really clever.

    Gave this book to my niece and nephew for their birthdays. It is their request every night for bedtime reading. They cannot wait for the next adventure.

    A delightful story about a feral cat who over time comes to love people and lives on the corner of a strip shopping center, making friends outside and visiting businesses inside. A great bedtime story to read to the littlest ones, for young ones beginning their reading journeys, and for grown-ups who are kids at heart and/or cat lovers. Heartwarming and fun!

    Adorable book about a great neighborhood shopping center that adopts an outside cat and makes it part of their large family/community. Having been involved with a rescue I love a story that reminds us and our children that family members can come in all shapes and sizes.

    A wonderful book about a cat that lives in a shopping center and details his adventures around and at each business. A delightful book that is well written for young readers. My 9 and 12-year-old grandsons loved it. Can't wait to see what Harry's next adventure will be!
