Book Review: Jennie by Paul Gallico - Reviewed by sudy01 (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.
PAUL GALLICO (1897-1976) was born in New York City and studied at Columbia University. After serving in the First World War he became a journalist with the New York Daily News where he enjoyed particular acclaim for his sports writing. In 1936 Paul Gallico moved to Salcombe in South Devon where he became a full time writer, living in a house on a hill with his Great Dane and twenty-three cats. He became a notable war correspondent during the Second World War. Among Paul Gallico's best known books are The Snow Goose (1941), a classic story of Dunkirk, and The Poseidon Adventure (1969), which was made into a very successful film. His magical stories about animals, particularly cats, are enduring favourites. These include Jennie (1950) and Thomasina (1957).
