What could Suzie Gump, the richest woman in town, possibly need from Otis’ antique shop?  When she saunters in one day to find it empty, she must simply have ALL of that beautiful NOTHING!  The trend spreads like wildfire and soon the whole town can’t get enough of nothing.  A wry satire that’s as wise as it is funny.  A delight to read and ponder.

Whip-smart, heart-breaking, hilarious.  Beautifully real.

It’s a big day for Jenny Linsky, the shy little black cat of Greenwich Village, when her brothers, Checkers and Edward, take her out for her birthday.

Available for the first time in decades, this collection includes Esther Averill’s five favorite cat club stories.  Sweet, funny, classic.  Jenny is as endearing as they come.
