I really liked this book and if you read the Doll Shop Downstairs, then you'd really enjoy this book. It is a little different than the last book. On my recommendation I would read that first book because it will help you understand a little bit better and it will give you some background information. If you are considering this book and have not read the other book I would wait on this one and get the other one then get this one right after you've read the other book. This book is historical fiction. I loved it. It is not just about cats it's also about a cousin who had been in europe in world war two and her weird habits.
I love animals and this book includes storyline about animals. This book demonstrates a lot of kindness.
I thought this book was awesome! Anna is so excited to have her cousin visit for a year but when she arrives its not what she expects!
