Stuart Little Kitty-boy Placido Mooch Dove Mouse Regis is “The Cat with Seven Names.” He’s always hungry and loving. In a busy neighborhood where six people live but never interact, the cat uses his love of eating and love of people to bring them all together. Find out how this amazing cat changes people’s hearts and connects them in friendship to make life a lot more fun. Tony Johnston’s heartfelt story, colorfully accented by soft pencil and ink illustrations by Christine Davenier, make this a book to enjoy both young and old alike. I would love to live in this connected neighborhood Cat created.
