Chloe has ten older brothers and sisters and ten younger brothers and sisters. She’s in the middle and she loves it—especially when they all gather for family fun time.

But when Dad brings home a surprise one evening, Chloe finds she is not in the middle anymore . . . but not for long!

With gorgeous colored-ink drawings and funny, spare text, Peter McCarty tells a winning story of family, imagination, and love.

Review: Chloe

User Review  - Karen - Goodreads

My five-year-old son picked out this book this week because this week he wanted books with white covers and because one of our cats is named Chloe. Alas, this book did not do justice our Chloe Cat -- she is much more interesting and far less didactic, and she is much, much cuter. Read full review
