"Impeccable rhythm and rhyme distinguish this particular tale, filled, as always, with Donaldson's exemplary humor and heart." - "New York Times Book Review" Praise for Tabby McTat, The Musical Cat "A surprising and fun read.... [Scheffler's] bright-eyed, warmhearted characterizations make this a wonderful testimony to the ties that bind." -- Publishers Weekly "The team behind Room on the Broom pair up again in what has become a near-annual ritual of picture book perfection.... Impeccable rhythm and rhyme distinguish this particular tale, filled, as always, with Donaldson's exemplary humor and heart." -- New York Times "A fun frolic about musical duos who aren't quite the same without each other. Like their trademark tune, it all ends 'PURRRR-fectly'." -- Booklist
