Haven't read Jennie, but Paul Gallico's book The Silent Miaow is one of my all-time favorite cat books...!
What is Jennie about?
A boy who becomes a cat. (kinda)
He meets Jennie and has lots of lovely adventures.
I read it at school when aged 11 and recently purchased a copy and re read it aged 54. Lovely read.
I passed it on to my wife who thoroughly enjoyed it too.
I think it may have been pulblished under a different title in the States, maybe "The Abandoned"
I bought "The Silent Miaow" for my wife 2 Christmases ago.
Sounds like a good read. I love to read, and of course anything animal related is even better! But, I'll have to look on eBay if I can't find it cheaper than $40. IMO, that is a little pricey for a book.
Yes the Snow Goose was lovely as well. This all reminds me of how much I used to love Paul Gallico as a writer. He wrote such a variety of things, including, I believe, The Poseidon Adventure.
I'll have to go off an google him now!
