Charlie, a fuzzy gray cat, walked out of the woods one evening and into Elizabeth''s and Sarah''s hearts. Now he sleeps on their beds, lets them dress him up in doll clothes, and laps up warm milk on chilly nights. But where does Charlie go during the day?
It''s not until a storm keeps Charlie away one night that the two sisters discover his other, daytime, home. But maybe that''s not such a bad thing. Because, just like Elizabeth and Sarah, Charlie has two houses, two beds, and two families who love him very, very much!

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Children's author Charlie Anderson is one of the most important children's books I've read! There are no wasted words. It is short and to the point ... and what a wonderful conclusion. It briefly lets the reader know that Mom and Dad have separate lives, without dwelling on it. I recommend this book to all children of divorced parents - and to all children who know children of divorced parents. Superb picture-book. Of course, I think the illustrations are gentle and soft - a perfect match for the text.
