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 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.
