The Cats on Ben Yehuda Street: 07/27/13
The Cats on Ben Yehuda Street by Ann Redisch Stampler is about a pair of cats who bring together long time neighbors. The story is set in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Mr. Modiano runs the Fish Palace and his place is understandably very popular with the local stray cat population. His neighbor and best customer, Mrs. Spiegel cares for two cats, but can only keep one in her apartment.
Although Mr. Modiano isn't a fan of cats, he does like Mrs. Spiegel. So he comes to her rescue, searching on his motor scooter all night for her missing cat. It is through Mrs. Spiegel that Mr. Modiano's feelings towards cats soften.
It's a sweet picture book about friendship and the way animals can enrich our lives.
