  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 January #1
    A tiny cat searching for a special spot, a misunderstood dog, and a tribe of squirrels and birds, plus one bewildered mouse, come together in this free-verse narrative about being lost and finding one's place. One day a dancing leaf beckons to Patches, and soon the cat has wandered far from home. She takes shelter in a doghouse, and grumpy canine Gus is none too pleased when he discovers his house guest. He comes around, however, once he realizes Patches needs a safe place to give birth. When she lets Gus name a kitten and calls another Gustina in honor of her host, a bond is cemented between the two. Complications arise when Gus becomes possessive of "his" kittens, and Patches' human girl needs to be found, but, happily, a host of animals and people come to help. Newbery Honor Book author Bauer (On My Honor, 1987) has written a poetic and charming tale for young readers, bolstered by Bell's adorable, breezy illustrations. Animal lovers will want to take this home pronto. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
