“He’s kind of negative, your cat.” Most cats appreciate a toy mouse–and might even purr once in a while. Not Max, who prefers to stare at the wall. One by one, his new family gives up on him, except for the boy, who loves his cat so much, he’ll do anything to keep him. Even the thing he dreads most. Which, as it turns out, make everything quite positive. This book is written and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, two-time Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator.
