First sentence: Lola loves cats. She wants a real one. Mommy says looking after a cat is a lot of work.
Premise/plot: Lola is a little girl who LOVES cats. Is she ready to get a real cat for a pet?
My thoughts: Lola Gets A Cat is a cute, sweet story about a little girl getting a cat as a pet. It isn't enough to want a pet, you have to be ready to take care of a pet. This involves the whole family getting prepared. It also involves patience. Lola's cat, Makeda, has to get used to her new home.
