This is a sweet story that deals with the issue of loss in a gentle manner.

Grandpop is heartbroken when Nana dies. He misses his best friend.

And then he goes on a camping trip and meets Blackie, a stray cat who loves fishing as much as he does.

Their friendship grows and Grandpop is sad to leave her behind. Luckily Blackie has a mind of her own.

Gabriella Klepatski's illustrations are lovely, especially the studies of the cat in movement and play.

Ages 2-5.
