Peter's family has lived all over the world, but now they've settled permanently in Boston. As Peter struggles to adjust to major changes, his family's dead-but-not-forgotten cats appear. Are they ghosts? Angels? Or the hallucinations of a restless boy?


As a kid growing up, I relished the twice-annual Scholastic Book Fair. Ghost Cats was a purchase from this fair, probably when I was nine or ten. I had few pets and thus didn’t relate as well with the loss of them, but this story of family and change was one that stuck with my nine-year-old self… enough so that at 26, I still have this old paperback sitting on my shelf.
