"The Cat and the Fiddle" for a new generation, by bestselling author Barbara Joosse

Old Robert has everything he needs. Nothing more, nothing less. Each and every day, he sails the sea, alone. And each and every night, he docks his boat and prepares his dinner, alone. Until one evening when he gets a very strange visitor: a dancing cat. There's no room in Old Robert's shipshape boat for a cat. But much to his surprise, he finds himself smiling a bit, and inviting the cat in for dinner. The following night another cat arrives, this one juggling. And once again, Old Robert surprisingly finds himself inviting the cat in to his home. Before long, Old Robert has a boatful of cats, singing and dancing and juggling. He still has everything he needs, but now he has so much more.

Barbara Joosse and Jan Jutte have teamed up again to deliver a story that will dance its way into readers' hearts.

User Review  - achatela - LibraryThing

Old Robert was someone who lived upon on his boat. He would sail every day. One night he gets a visit from a dancing cat. Soon to Robert's surprise he had five cats living with him on his boat. This book was very original. I liked how it was cats that found Old Robert and gave him company. Read full review
