Using a poetic, end rhyme scheme, Sandra L. Smith brings together the story of The Cupboard Cat. One family has a cat who decides to spend most of her time atop the cupboard. There, she pears out and watches everything around her home. With patience, and creativity, the family learns to coax the cupboard cat down to interact, eat, and play. But try as they might, the cupboard is home and The Cupboard Cat is here to stay. 28 Full-Color Illustrations by the artist/Author. Based on a true story of a family cat.
