I've read and reread the author's The Witch Family and The Hundred Dresses since I was a girl, but I'd never run across Miranda the Great before. Miranda, a large golden cat who belongs to a Roman senator's family, smells smoke one day. What Senator Marcus has been warning has come to pass: barbarians are sacking and burning Rome. Claudia, his daughter, and her mother would have gladly taken Miranda and her daughter, Punka, with them, but the cats were frightened by Marcus' horse and hid. Miranda leads her daughter and some abandoned kittens to safety. This fierce cat even stands up to a lion. It's a charming tale for cat lovers.
Review: Miranda the GreatUser Review - Goodreads
I love this book. Makes me want to go to Rome. Silly and good and a classic. G: I like this book even though I don't like cats. It's all about a "cat-astrophe." Get it?
