Too Many Cats

Too Many Cats. Leah Raechel Killen. 1988. 30 pages. [Source: Bought]

First sentence: Peter's father has a store. It is called Farfel's Food Store. Peter helps his father in the store. There are so many things to do. Every day, Peter takes out the trash. He puts it in a big can by the back door. One day, Peter got a big surprise. A cat was sitting next to the big can. The cat smelled bits of food in the can. He wanted to get into the can. He wanted to eat the food.

Premise/plot: Peter finds a cat; he names him Sam. Peter feeds Sam every day. But Sam never comes alone. Sam has FRIENDS. One day, Peter leaves the store door open, will the cats go into the store and cause a ruckus?! How will Peter ever get ALL those cats out of the store? Is he hiding some cat-herding skills?

My thoughts: I enjoyed this one. It did start off slow. But when the cats go into the store, the action begins. Is it realistic? Probably not. I'm guessing that giving away free cats wouldn't be all that easy. But it was fun.
