Millions of Cats
This TL picture book is a Newberry award winning in 1928. It is about an old married couple who lived in a small house surrounded by flowers, but they felt very lonely. The wife requested that the husband to go out and bring back the prettiest cat so they wouldn't be so lonely. The husband could not decide on which cat was the cutest so he ends up bringing hundreds home!
I feel like Emilio is judging me. #catsofLitsy
This TL book is about and old woman who wanted a fluffy cat. Her husband found millions of cats on the side of a hill and brought them all home, but then realized they couldn't feed every cat. The old man asked the cats which was the prettiest, and only one didn't think they were pretty. The old man and woman took in the "ugly" cat and made it pretty like the others! http://www.scholastic.com/browse/collateral.jsp?id=36051 #UCFLAE3414sp17

#24in48 - Books 5 and 6. Probably the most violent we'll read (or ever written), but Jane and I love it. Giraffes Can't Dance is a nice feel-good chaser. Paired with Cheetos (or as Jane calls them "Cheesy Noodles").
So, this never made any sense. The cats couldn't literally all devour each other until there was nothing left. Shouldn't there have been, like, one really really fat cat left at the end of the fight?
Was inspired by a visit to Ernest Hemingway's house.
