Carrot was a cat
content day to day.
She would nap until noon,
then head out to play.

Parents Magazine: Parents 20 Best Children's Books 2011

Librarians, teachers, and literacy experts nominated more than 150 of their favorite children's books from thousands of titles published this year. Then a panel of kids and parents cast their votes.




“What’s a plain old house cat to do when she sees another living the life of pampered luxury on board a yacht? Why, dream of course! Of trips around the world. Of sumptuous foods brought right to her cushion. And then marriage to a prince!


“But dreams give way to realities. Of the people who depend on her company. Of the familiar streets and haunts. Even of the old, sick mouse that she brings food to.


“In the end, our Carrot decides that her life is really far richer than the isolation she sees with the white, fluffed and distant object of her initial envy.”
