Description - Jennie by Paul Gallico

"If in doubt, wash!" What is it like to be a cat? Find out in this classic animal story from the renowned writer Paul Gallico. Peter Brown longs for a pet cat. One day, he is following a stray cat through the streets when he is knocked down and seriously hurt. On waking, he is astonished to find that he has turned into a cat... The world is a dangerous place for him, but luckily he is rescued and befriended by Jennie, a kindly stray tabby who has been abandoned by her owners. Adventures wait around every corner for the two new friends, as Jennie teaches Peter all about life as a cat. Humorous and touching, and packed with acutely observed feline behaviour, this is a beloved classic that's essential for any cat-lover.

Book Review: Jennie by Paul Gallico - Reviewed by (29 May 2011)

One of my favourite books, this is one I return to often. It is certainly a book written for those who love or are interested in cats and is a magical piece of fiction. I am unsure whether it is actually a book written for older children or for adults, but I have been reading it since my early to mid teens. It is a wonderful story of a boy who becomes a cat and has to learn all there is to the amazingly complex life of a stray cat in England in a time not that long past. As a cat lover myself I find the story very interesting and informative - who knows if cats really think or have conversations - but I certainly like to think that they do. An easy read this book makes you stop and look at a cat and its behaviour in a totally new light.
