Horn Book Review

A kitten named Violet is searching for God's plan for her. Although she is hopeless at chasing mice, by the end of the story, Violet has found her calling (although readers may not come away knowing what it is). The wordy, heavy-handed story is ably illustrated with McCully's loose pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. (c) Copyright 2010.
