Stocking Stuffers

by Sandall, Philippa
Here's an unusual take: a cat's-eye view of maritime history. Narrator and able sea-cat Bart sets the record straight, bringing the news about just how indespensible cats have been at sea. Among the 38 true tales told here are the adventures of Trim (who circumnavigated Australia), Tom (the sole feline to survive the sinking of the USS Maine), and celebrity cat Simon (a veteran of the Yangtze Incident). Brimming with nautical trivia, rare photographs, and whimsical illustrations, this book will inform and delight.
