Book Description

From Publishers Weekly Gethers was an aileurophobe until he met kitten Norton, who turned out to be a very special pet indeed. A BOMC selection in cloth. Illustrated. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. Read more From School Library Journal YA-- Two pet owners tell of their talented animals in relaxed, entertaining ways. Gethers's style is extremely light and at times funny as he tells how Norton taught him to like cats, how easily this feline made friends with airline crews, explored Parisian rooftops, and stood vigil at the death of his owner's father. Blind actor-musician Tom Sullivan relates, through White, how he had to let Dinah train him as she was so much more capable than his previous guide dog. Chapters of Gethers's book open with appealing line-drawing caricatures; the photographs in Leading Lady appear in a centerfold. Animal lovers are sure to enjoy these stories of almost unbelievably skilled pets. --Claudia Moore, W. T.
