Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Brina, a city cat, moved to the mountains with the owners for a summer holiday. Here she meets some stray cats who call themselves "The Gang of the Feline Sun". The new friends convince her to escape her owners and become a free cat. But while Brina enjoys her newfound freedom and all the new types of delectable bugs the countryside has to offer, her young owners are panicking over losing her, a member of their family. Brina must make a choice to live with her owners, where it's safe (but confined) or go free in the wilderness. A heartwarming tender cat tale."--Publisher's website.

    Brina is a city cat who goes on vacation with her loving owners to the country. As she starts to explore, she meets a group of wild kitties who tell her that she's missing out on the best part of life: not living with humans. Brina joins them in their tricks throughout the town, all the while her owners are desperately searching, wondering if she is gone forever. As Brina gets to know her new friends, she wonders if the wild is the place for her, and eventually, she must make a decision: stay wild or go back to her loving owners and her city home. This cute and colorful graphic novel nicely demonstrates how bullying can take different forms and emphasizes how people (or cats) need to stand up for what they know to be true. Easy-to-follow panels and clear lettering make this a good pick for readers new to comics, and watercolor-like artwork shows dramatic details of both cats and humans. Cat-lovers in particular will be enchanted. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
