"The Town Cats" and Other Tales - Lloyd, Alexander

Meet Baraka, the cat who plays chess more cunningly than any human Pescato, who acts as mayor for a day and dupes royalty; and other cats who befriend, aid, and outwit their human companions. As in Time Can Lloyd Alexander brings these felines to life with his trademark verve, making sure you'll never take a cat for granted again!
