About the Author

ANNIE M. G. SCHMIDT (1911-1995) was regarded as the Queen of Dutch Children's Literature, and her books have been an essential part of every Dutch childhood for the last fifty years. Having won numerous awards during her lifetime, including the 1989 Hans Christian Andersen Award, Schmidt is now included in the canon of Dutch history taught to all Dutch schoolchildren, alongside Spinoza, Anne Frank, and Vincent van Gogh.

DAVID COLMER has won several international awards for his translations of Dutch and Flemish novels, poetry, and children's books. He has translated much of Annie M. G. Schmidt's work.

". . . a fanciful tale. . . .Readers will come away with the knowledge that caring for someone (or some cat) can make one a better, stronger, more empathetic person."--School Library Journal

"Schmidt raises questions about what it is to be human, what it is to be a cat, what it is to be something in between, and what it means to accept someone for who she is."--Shelf Awareness, Starred
