Cat and Canary: 09/06/10
Cat and Canary by Michael Foreman is the story of a pair of pets who spend their time having adventures in Manhattan while their owner is at work. The canary introduces the cat to the local pigeons giving the two unlikely friends access to even more of the city.
This is a book my daughter and I don't agree on. Harriet didn't like the pets getting out of the apartment without their owner's knowledge. She thought they should get in trouble for disobeying. She also was worried that the cat would get hurt, lost or worse, killed.
Since neither the cat nor the canary get hurt, I found the book delightful. I just couldn't convince Harriet though about the book's merits. The 3 star rating reflects our disagreement.

It looks so cute. But I might have to side with Harriet on the worry side for the safety even though I seldom worry in real life. :)

It is a cute book but perhaps a bit heart stopping especially near the end.
