    If the cover collage doesn’t make you want this book, then read the single-sentence description:

    The unforgettable adventures of a small boy changed into a stray cat and befriended by the indomitable Jennie, who initiates him into the lore of London’s streets.

    The Albertus title has a ‘J’ that sits on the baseline — in digital versions it descends.

    Paul Gallico was a prolific author best known for The Snow Goose. He wrote a number of books about cats, including:

    The Silent Miaow (1964) purports to be a guide written by a cat, “translated from the feline”, on how to obtain, captivate, and dominate a human family. —Wikipedia

    He seems like a pretty cool cat himself. There are a couple other Penguin editions with great illustrated covers. Jennie was titled The Abandoned for its US release.
