Review from Scholastic's Parent & Child Magazine: Teacher's Pick, Best of 2006

"In this cumulative story, a patient girl tries to lure a stray cat inside her cozy home, by leaving enticements outside her front door. Each day she ups the ante, until eventually she’s converted her porch into a perfectly comfortable home for her and the cat. (The author’s note reveals that Olympus the cat didn’t come inside her own home for four years.) The story is illustrated with original dioramas that the author’s family contributed to in significant ways". -by Carolyn Rogalsky, Parent and Child, Teacher's Picks, Best of 2006
