James Herriot has become one of the most beloved children's authors we have. His warm, gentle tales of his life as a country veterinarian, retold and illustrated for young readers, have become perennial favorites.

This latest adventure follows a stray cat left with the Herriots by a little girl who found him wandering. Herriot and his wife fall in love with him, and name him Oscar. But the cat keeps sneaking away, and they don't know why—until he begins turning up at social events all over Darrowby. Oscar, it seems, just likes to visit: he's a cat-about-town.

Illustrated with the rich, glowing watercolors of Ruth Brown, Oscar, Cat-About-Town will delight James Herriot's young admirers, and is sure to win the hearts of many more.
