Read full description of the books The Fire Cat:Whilst waiting for my daughter's ballet class to finish I found this 1960's copy in a charity shop for a £1, very happy moment. I sat in the car and read it from cover to cover and as soon as my daughter got into the car she did the same. Considering how ancient this book is the story is very sensitive and forward thinking. Pickles is a cat living rough, he is bored and has no purpose and chases small cats up trees. Mrs Goodkind can see that Pickles needs a home and a purpose in life. After a failed attempt at living with Mrs Goodkind and her timid kitties Pickles finds his true vocation in life and earns the respect of those around him. The illustrations are absolutely lovely, not all slick and polished but have a really good feeling of the era and have spontaneity. Beautiful colour scheme of orange, yellow, pink, and olive green. Would highly recommend to those who love simple stories and vintage illustrations. We will be definitely looking out for the rest of the series.
Read information about the authorEsther Averill (1902-1992) began her career as a storyteller drawing cartoons for her local newspaper. After graduating from Vassar College in 1923, she moved first to New York City and then to Paris, where she founded her own publishing company. The Domino Press introduced American readers to artists from all over the world, including Feodor Rojankovsky, who later won a Caldecott Award. In 1941, Esther Averill returned to the United States and found a job in the New York Public Library while continuing her work as a publisher. She wrote her first book about the red-scarfed, mild-mannered cat Jenny Linsky in 1944, modeling its heroine on her own shy cat. Esther Averill would eventually write twelve more tales about Miss Linsky and her friends (including the I Can Read Book, The Fire Cat), each of which was eagerly awaited by children all over the United States (and their parents, too).
