Captain is a very handsome cat who lives his quiet cat life in a lovely house by the river. He does all the ordinary sorts of cat things that other cats do--like eating and sleeping and washing and purring. But Captain also has a secret. . . .
Lush watercolor illustrations and a lyrical text are certain to enchant readers and cat lovers young and old in this classic--yet unexpectedly fresh--picture book.
