Thomas the Ship's Cat
Story and pictures by Charlotte Baker
"Thomas Cat was a very satisfied cat, living with Miss Tansie who fed him blueberry muffins and cream puffs. He had no desire to go to sea, but Captain Crabbe, Miss Tansie's suitor of 20 years, needed a cat for his sailing ship to keep the rats away. As much as he disliked it, Thomas adapted to the ship and became its mascot. He saved the ship ... [a number of times]. ... When he got back to Miss Tansie there was a happy surprise waiting. Lots of adventure and fun." A delightful tale for the young reader.
