Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In Jenny Goes to Sea, our heroine makes her passage on the good ship Sea Queen with her master, Captain Tinker, and her adopted brothers, tiger cat Edward, and black-and-white cat Checkers. Once on board, they meet the adventurous ship's cat, Jack Tar. Leaving New York's harbor, the friends travel to Africa and Asia, and return through the Panama Canal. At each port they meet a colorful local cat who shows them around. Jenny and her pals have their fortunes told by an Abyssinian cat in Zanzibar; dance the sailor's hornpipe with Bobo the Burmese, another ship's cat who was left behind, in Singapore; and float with Siamese cat Dara in a sampan boat on a Bangkok river a truly exotic adventure.

Horn Book Review

These stories about Jenny Linsky, a plucky little black cat whose bright red scarf gives her courage, are welcome reissues. Averill's unpolished but utterly charming illustrations enliven all the books. [Review covers these Jenny's Cat Club titles: Jenny Goes to Sea, Jenny's Moonlight Adventure, and The School for Cats.] (c) Copyright 2010.
