Horn Book Review

A Native American girl describes the close calls that claim her cat's nine lives. When Woogie disappears, the narrator fears that her cat's luck has finally run out, but after a few days Woogie returns relatively unharmed, leading Aunt Sally to declare that Woogie's a real good luck cat. The thin plot, which consists of Woogie's calamities, results in a rather cheerless story, but the realistic acrylic illustrations are attractive. From HORN BOOK Fall 2000, (c) Copyright 2010.
