書籍內容簡介:
這本書描寫的是老人與貓的故事,當老人買了一條電毯之後,會對他們的生活產生什麼影響呢?適合5歲以上兒童閱讀。

An old man and his cat, each a little prickly with the other, spend their days together sitting on their porch in rural Texas, fishing from a little boat (though the cat "never caught nothin'"), and eating the man's potato soup. One morning, the cat won't get up to go fishing, so the man leaves without her. Fog prevents him from coming back till the next day. Hungry during his absence, the cat leaves, returning several days later with a large fish and a proud, wailing tale of how she caught it. Their days apart renew their respect for each other. The book design has a simple elegance that showcases the folksy, rather poetic text. The quiet, watercolor-and-gouache paintings are especially handsome, and Root portrays both the characters with warmth, dignity, and restraint. Not a lot happens in the story, but this picture book presents the delicately shifting relationship between the old man and his cat in a way that children can understand.
