Mrs. McTats and Her Houseful of Cats

by Alyssa Satin Capucilli, illustrated by Joan Rankin

Mrs. McTats and her cat, Abner, are living happily together when some new cats come scratching at Mrs. McTats’s door. By twos and threes, and then fours and more, the cats come, welcomed by Mrs. McTats (though Abner’s not so sure about it all!). Just when it seems the house is full to bursting, the cats stop coming. Whew! So many cats! But Mrs. McTats can’t help feeling something – or someone – is missing. Then there’s one more scratch at the door – and Mrs. McTats finds just what the family needs to be complete.

Playful rhymes, which surprise with an alphabetic twist, combine hilarious illustrations, which give each cat a distinct personality, to guarantee hours of reading pleasure
