Charming illustrations decorate this survival tale. When the solitary cat hears a plot to burn down the barn with the animals in it, the animals have to figure out how to escape to safety. Where will they live next? (Can you imagine a stray cow, pig, owl, sheep, and cat simply turning up on your doorstep? A difficulty indeed.) School Library Journal said, "Fans of Charlotte's Web and other gentle animal stories will enjoy this charming tale."
