Utterly charming, always entertaining.  The collected works of Esther Averill never fail to delight as we follow Jenny Linsky, the shy little black cat with the red scarf on her adventures in Greenwich Village with her feline friends.

“There is a realness about Jenny, as well as a demure charm, that gives these annals of her doings a distinction lacking in many a more pretentious effort.” —The New Yorker

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.


Gorgeous scratchboard art to swoon over from the author/illustrator of the classic Corduroy.  Earl’s mom thinks he’s been spoiled by a little girl who feeds him acorns each day.  It’s time he set out and find some grub on his own!  But will he know how to get his paws on some?
