Jessie, James and William the cat live on a farm with fifty cattle, twenty chickens, four horses and three dogs. One day their lives are changed, never to be the same again. The combination of Margaret Wild's loving, poignant story and Julie Vivas's exquisite illustrations has produced a memorable picture book which will touch the hearts of young, and not-so-young, readers. Winner of the Australian Children's Book Council's Picture Book of the Year Award. A 1990 American Library Association Notable Children's Book, and An American Bookseller "Pick of the List".
