    One cat visits many different people earning seven names and many meals along the way He starts off by wandering into a librarian's home and after feeding hims some fish she dubs him Stuart Little He then makes friends with an elderly gentleman Hispanic man police officer homeless guy and young girl new to the neighborhood Each gives him a name many feed him and the young girl's mom points out that this is one obese kitty At the end of the story the cat is nearly hit by a car and all of his temporary owners get to know one another The cat's official owner shows up to take him home and it's revealed that the cat's name is Regis The temporary owners get to know one another and it's nice to see that those in need of some human interaction find a friendly face Each character has a fresh and distinctive voice which makes this a great book to use for writing instruction I also really like that no one gives the cat milk The story isn't terribly original it reminds me of Six Dinner Sid but the story is sweet and it's nice to see uniue and distinctive voices for each of the characters Recommended for grades 1 3 though it could be used as an instructional text for upper elementary as well

    Humans come together for many different reasons and this sweet story features a plump cat that somehow manages to bring together six different families As the gray cat wanders into their separate lives each of the men women and a girl offer it food a new name and accept its companionship Brought together by their concern for the feline when he is almost struck by a car all of them find that they have something in common despite their differences Something tells me that they'll never be lonely again thanks to a cat that knew his way around the neighborhood as well as around some lonely folks' hearts The ink and colored pencil illustrations highlight the city's busy pace and the eagerness with which each of the cat's new owners take him in Although I don't recommend letting cats roam freely about the streets in this case Regis clearly uses his freedom wisely

    Johnston introduces us to a stray cat who romps through an urban neighborhood making new friends Every neighbor has a name for the rogue tomcat and almost everyone feeds the full figured male except the homeless man who can't feed himself Tacos tuna fish Big Mac's Oh my Of course like every good picture book Johnston saves the best for last when she brings the community together to save the cat and back into the hands of his rightful owner It's a good thing our hero had nine lives and even better that's he's introduced the neighborhood to new friends It turns out the homeless man and the old man have a war in common and the senor mom daughter and librarian love books Who doesn't right?The Cat with Seven Names is perfect for all you readers who adore furry friends and those who just want to be entertained with an endearing tail I mean tale For ages 5


  5. Katrina Dombrowsky Katrina Dombrowsky says:

    I liked the concept of giving us a glimpse into the seven different peoples' lives You could really hear each character's voice as they narrated their portion of the story and I really appreciated this differentiation The ending bothered me a bit as it just felt a little too contrived and unrealistic I mean I know it's a children's book but it felt like things got tied up a little too neatly and uickly with everyone becoming instantly connected at the end But I did like the idea of the cat bringing together people from all different walks of life many of whom really needed a friend

    A wandering cat brings a group of strangers together The cat touches each person's life in a different way and is called by a different name by each person When the cat is almost hit by a car everyone becomes acuainted with one another and the cat and his rightful owner are reunitedThe storytelling here is superb All of the characters and stories are woven together like a fine tapestry Illustrations were rendered using ink and colored pencils This is one of my favorite cat stories in recent memory PreK 2


  7. Linda Linda says:

    Beautiful watercolor sketches tell a story of a wandering cat who surprises several people by visiting and having a bite to eat then moving on He brings cheer to an older lonely man a librarian a homeless man and others There is a surprise ending which will cheer readers too

  9. Danielle Long Danielle Long says:

    I just happened to come across this book today I must say it is a wonderful story about a cat who brings strangers together and makes a community stronger

    One of the perks of my current job is that I end up seeing a lot of current books Most of them claim to be social studies related but there are many different ways to interpret what that means It can be history geography or just personal relationships Which means that pretty much any book can ualify One book came across my desk at the end of last year that I didn't think I'd like but ended up loving The Cat with Seven Names written by Tony Johnston and illustrated by Christine Davenier I'm not generally a cat person I do have oneit might be because I have one I'm really a dog lover But this book and the message in the book captured my heartIn a busy neighborhood filled with brownstone apartments different people go about their lives They don't necessarily interact with each other they pass each other on the streets but don't say hello don't even notice each other they just hurry about their business Like most of us do A cat came to my back door one day Gray with white paws Nobody visits me much I put down the book I was reading I am a librarian and I let him inThe kind woman feeds the cat reads some books with him and feels the love and companionship that a cat can bring The librarian names him Stuart Little A few pages laterI went out for the paper once in the cold of dawn Left the door ajar With my walker I moved slow as molasses So a cat slipped in Just like that My family's grown and gone so this small bit of company felt nice Kinda filled up the house again this older man also feeds the cat and has conversations with the cat who he names Kitty Boy Kitty Boy just talkes back in cat language but the old man is fine with it The cat comes and goes as it pleases eventually visiting six different people and families in the neighborhood And gets six different names as it does so The other people include a homeless man a police officer and othersand then the cat's true owner finds him She's been looking all over for him and finally finds him The circumstances bring the neighborhood together bonding over this pet they've come to have in common They're able to build on this community actually talking to each other and eventually having street parties and opening up their homes and their hearts The end papers of the book tell the whole story the beginning of the book is a view of the street with everyone looking down at the sidewalk turning towards their own homes a dark aspect about the sceneat the end of the book it's a brighter view ostensibly the same but with friendly faces hands waved in greeting happy faces and a sense of community that was missing All because of that dumb lost cat I really loved this book It's got a powerful message and the story and artwork match up beautifully If you've got children or teach them and want to help them learn about building bridges to other neighbors and cultures this is a great way to do it
