Tabby McTat loves his life on the streets with his owner, Fred, singing (and caterwauling) for coins that people throw in Fred's hat. But one day, Fred is in an accident, and the two are separated! Will Tabby and Fred find their way back to each other?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Tabby McTat"A fun frolic about musical duos who aren't quite the same without each other." -Booklist"[A] lighthearted tale of friendship and music." -Kirkus"Bright-eyed, warmhearted characterizations make this a wonderful testimony to the ties that bind." -Publishers Weekly"Scheffler's city scenes in saturated colors evoke a variety of emotions, and the expressions on the faces of the kittens and the people are hilarious." -School Library Journal
