Christopher Short's new novel, The Big Cat, is a departure from his humorous, light-hearted work. The book is set in the fictional town of Redfern, Iowa, in the early 1950s. It tells the story of a young boy, Tim, who is taken in by a group of wild cats who have been abandoned by their owner. Tim soon discovers that the cats are more than just creatures to be taken care of--they are friends, companions, and teachers. With Christopher Short's trademark humor and insight, The Big Cat is an unforgettable story of friendship and courage.; 8vo; FSA.
