Novel about the boy Peter, who, as he lies unconscious following an accident, dreams that he becomes a cat.  A wise tabby named Jennie befriends him and teaches him much about behaving like a cat ("when in doubt, wash") and other life lessons.  Another of Gallico's memorable, heart-warming stories. An early Christian Herald's Family Bookshelf Selection, as this book club began only in 1949.  Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.
