Ghost Eye

by Marion Dane Bauer
Illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman

Published by Scholastic, 1992
82 pages
ISBN: 0-590-45298-3

Ages 8 - 11

Purrloom Popcorn, a white Cornish rex cat with one blue and one gold eye, is proud of his "Best of Best" championship status at cat shows. His ever-changing agents provide him with the highest quality food and care. He hardly even misses being cuddled or coddled, attentions he has a vague memory of receiving long ago, before his owner became ill. After her death, Popcorn is dismayed to be sent home from the pet shows to a house now occupied by his owner's grand-niece and her parents. Even more upsetting than his comedown in status, however, are the other cats that await him -- ghost cats, that Popcorn can see only through his gold eye. Popcorn eventually learns the value of love and affection as he, and his new owner, develop their relationship. CCBC categories: Fiction For Children. 1992, Scholastic Hardcover, 82 pages, $12.95.
