Description

Paul Gallico’s descriptions of cats and their lives is quite detailed and it looks like they were based on real observations. What we were both talking about was Jennie, a novel for children, written in the fifties by Paul Gallico.

Jennie" offers memorable characters and situations which can help children name and understand their feelings and reflect on what to do with them in their words, behavior and relationships.Movies, as well as electronic gadgets, have pretty much replaced that incredible joy of just diving deep into the world of a book. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. His sportswriting career took off when he asked to spar with Jack Dempsey (and wrote the account of how it felt to be knocked out by him! The book was published more than thirty years before I was born, so it could be that the writing tripped me up. He is perhaps best remembered for The Snow Goose, his only real critical success, and for the novel The Poseidon Adventure, primarily through the 1972 film adaptation.

Starving, chased away, stepped on by unaware people because he lacks the cat sense to get out of the way, Peter is almost killed by a ferocious territorial feral top cat. He tries to find a place to stay, but a big cat which regards that place as his territory bullies him, attacks him, and injures him. Paul Gallico truly explores what it would be like to be a cat living in the wild, with no guaranteed source of food or shelter. Of course, it is also racist (the cats sniffle at each others pedigree constantly), sexist and classist.

I sometimes forgot the protagonist was supposed to be an eight year old, and sometimes it even seemed like the author forgot as well.
