I loved this charming book. It is a slim, easy to read collection of short stories about Miss Petitfour and her 16 cats. They enjoy many small yet whimsical adventures. Miss Petitfour's fanciful adventures have a tall-tale level of absurdity, but they are delightful. The colourful illustrations are enchanting and sweet. The author clearly is having great fun with language throughout the book. Altogether, the book is completely adorable. Anyone who loves cats, books, pastries, tea parties and adventure will love this book.

A funny, whimsical tale of Miss Petitfour & her many cats. It is full of wordplay and charm, and includes all of my favourite things -- tea, cats, stamps, cakes, comforts, books, and wonderful illustrations of the many beautiful dresses of Miss Petitfour :)

Beautifully written by Toronto's poet laureate no less, and exquisitely illustrated. For cat lovers of all ages.

Possibly the tweest book ever created.

Miss Petitfour and her sixteen (!) charming feline companions embark a number of whimsical adventures reminiscent of Mary Poppins.

As charming and light as a French pastry.

What an incredibly charming collection of stories! Each tale deals with the every day adventures of Miss Petitfour and her sixteen cats. Lessons about imagination and dealing with the directions that life takes us provide a warm feeling that even in the midst of unexpected circumstances, there is much to enjoy in this world.
