Item description for The Christmas Cat by Efner Tudor Holmes & Tasha Tudor...
Overview A little cat, abandoned when its family moved away, struggles to survive in a bitterly cold forest on Christmas Eve, while in a nearby farmhouse a young boy wonders if the bad weather will prevent Santa Claus from coming.
It is Christmas Eve. An abandoned gray cat shivers alone in the cold, snowy forest. Not far away in a warm and cozy farmhouse, Jason anxiously asks his brother Nate if Santa Claus will be able to come in such bad weather. But soon the bitter wind stops howling and the sound of sleigh bells rings clearly through the woods. Neither the cat nor the boys know it, but a small Christmas miracle is about to occur....
Tasha Tudor's radiant illustrations illuminate this story, perfectly expressing the loving spirit that shines through the simple text. Efner Tudor Holmes skillfully combines down-to-earth reality with just a hint of seasonal magic.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Christmas Cat?
nice book but Jan 2, 2008
while the story is sweet with adequate but not spectacular illustrations,and includes a gingerbread recipe there is a relegious slant to the story. If that is what you are looking for, this is a very pleasant book in which a cat finds a home but if you want a secular holiday tale, "the Christmas Cat" has a nativity scene at the end.

The Christmas Cat Jan 19, 2007
I did not read this book; but did read the reviews when purchasing it which helped in my decision to purchase it as a Christmas gift. My granddaughter was delighted with it.
A Neat Little Book! Nov 29, 2000
My daughter recently read this book and liked it, like me she is a cat lover. I found the story charming, and of course it has a happy ending, being wrote for 4-8 year olds, however, I thought it should have been a couple of pages longer, at least. But overall, this book is worth the money. If you want another book of cats and Christmas, check out CHRISTMAS CATS, by Lesley Anne Ivory, this is a book of her paintings combined with little stories about cats and Christmas, for older children and adults.
Heartwarming and charming Oct 26, 2000
This is one of those books that, after picking it up at a friend's house, I had to have. I'm a longtime fan of Tasha Tudor's heartwarming illustrations, and here she does what she does best: animals, children and Christmas. Her daughter Efner, born to the tradition, gives us a charming tale of a little gray cat, lost and abandoned in a blizzard, and the Christmas magic that brings him into the lives of two children. A terrific book for children of any age, or adult cat-lovers like me!
