Billy, the Condominium Cat Reviews
Aw. A heart-tugging story about an old woman and her old cat, who have moved from New Hampshire to a third-floor condominium in Florida and now do little except sit outside, knit, watch TV, and muse about their pasts, which were full of activity and laughter and children. Slobodkina, who was a founding member of American Abstract Artists, does stylized but more or less realistic sepia-toned illustrations here. She draws cats well, humans less well.
Slow and gentle story.
A peculiar and unsatisfying story about an old woman and her cat, who live in a Florida condominium. The story focuses on how they got to the condominium: they lived in a house in New Hampshire, where the nieces and nephews came to visit, until the woman decided to move to Florida. Both the cat and the woman adjust to their new surroundings but miss the visits from the children. While the woman ages in the illustrations, the cat always looks like a kitten, which is disconcerting. The story didn't have any surprises and was rather flat. Disappointing.
