Publisher’s Blurb: A Stray is a story about Myra-Lou who longs to have a stray cat for a pet. Her parents are appalled and her brother disgusted, but Myra-Lou is insistent. After much haggling and a turn of events, Myra-Lou finally gets her stray.
This beautifully illustrated story deals with a young girl’s desire to improve the life of another and her parents’ journey to understand her better.
Brief Review (in under 50 words): The twist in the story about what happened to the toy cat and later the pet cat which Myra-Lou was given before she got to keep them as the “stray” she wanted would seem odd to some readers.
