Description


When a quietloving cat takes an unexpected tour of the neighborhood, he's in for some rude surprises--until he discovers the purrfect solution.

Homer is a very quiet cat. He lives in a very quiet house with a very quiet lady. But one day, while the lady is away, Homer hears a very loud sound, and out the window he goes! Poor Homer just wants to find a spot where he can curl up and be quiet, but his hometown is a surprisingly loud place. Will Homer find a bit of calm in all the noise? And will he ever find his quiet lady? Reeve Lindbergh's cheerful, rhyming text pairs with Anne Wilsdorf's charming illustrations for a story-lover's ode to everyone's favorite quiet place.

Praise for Homer, the Library Cat…


Lindbergh's rhyming text is upbeat and rhythmic without being too bouncy, a quality that matches the personality of the title character. Wilsdorf's tiger-striped Homer has a sweet smile, expressive eyes, and a penchant for lounging that make him the perfect companion and a welcome guest at his owner's place of employ.
