It's night and the dark is filled with strange sounds as Shane makes his way home. On a fence he finds a stray cat that at first growls and spits at him. But Shane talks and strokes the kitten to calmness, and decides to take the 'Spitfire, Kitten Number One,' home with him. No gang of boys, or avenue of dense traffic, or fierce dog can stop Shane carrying his new found friend to the place he calls home. reg Rogers' sensitive use of charcoal and pastel create Shane and his cat in splendid city-at-night time scenes.

      An important book to read and re-read to my children. Ground-breaking social commentary on homelessness but with hope.
