Do you have a little cat lover in your house? Then the 13 books in The Cat Club series will be perfect! Jenny Linsky is a shy, well-mannered black cat living in Greenwich Village. Her adventures with other cats in the neighborhood, and her owner, Captain Tinker– while wearing her signature red scarf, of course! — are charming and gentle. Written and illustrated by Esther Averill.
Most of this series are picture books, but the last few are full-length novels written for Early Middle-Grade Readers.
