Reviews - What do customers think about The Backpack Cat?
Delightful, well-written, and entertaining. Dec 23, 2004
A delightful, well-written tale of a nine-year-old boy dealing with his parents' separation. Daniel expects to spend a boring summer with his grandmother in Corpus Christi. Hot air balloons, a hurricane, and an adventuresome cat turn the summer into a special time with his grandmother. The author cleverly weaves interesting information into a highly entertaining plot.
A Joy to Read Dec 21, 2004
"A true delight! Marcia Bennett has written a joy to read and a story to share. I laughed out loud. Young Daniel, the protagonist, finds what he really needs - love. He finds the love in unexpected places and people, and even in an ugly old cat. What promised to be the most boring summer of his life turns out to be the most cherished of times. Join Daniel, Gram and Feogato on a journey of love, hope and lasting memories. This book will lift your spirit as it reminds you of the tender love that can only come from Grandmothers, the bond between boy and animal, and the answered prayers of God."
Highly recommended Dec 9, 2004
The Backpack Cat, by Marcia Allen Bennett, is a lovely and timely story of a lonely boy and his eccentric grandmother. It has a strong South Texas flavor, but its appeal will be universal to any child. Ms Bennett shows her affection and understanding of children in this book filled with adventure and laughs. From bank robbers, to a hurricane, to a silly (and quite ugly!) cat, this book's fast pace and believable characters make it one a child (and parent) will want to read again and again. Highly recommended, this book is something very special.
