Lovewright is a chilly person, and she knows exactly what she needs to warm up. There's no being cozy without a cat, she says. Lore Segal and Paul Zelinsky have created a timeless, fine, humorous work that is delightful for both adults and children. Mrs. Lovewright is among the funniest and most beautifully rendered characters I've found in children's literature. I give this book the high praise I reserve for such children's stories as Grasshopper on the Road, Caleb and Kate, and Mr. Do. ast year, I read Mrs. Lovewright over public radio and received numerous calls from adults who wanted to find a.

And we love Paul O. Zelinsky's illustrations from Rapunzel and other books, so I was sure this would be a hi. Her cat just doesn't want to cuddle and purr and do all the things she's always dreamed of. As a dog person myself, I really loved this book. I've owned this cat. I've cowered in fear. Zelinsky's illustrations from Rapunzel and other books, so I was sure this would be a hit. Somehow, though, it wa This was an entertaining story about a lonely old lady who wants a pet who will do whatever she wants, when she wants it to. Somehow she decides that a cat will do the trick. As most cat owners know, this is not the way to earn the love of a cat. As a cat owner and decidedly "cat person," I thought this would be a humorous story. The illustrations really make this book.

When it got night outside, she closed her door and made herself a fire; then she took off her shoes and put her feet up on the stool, and that's when Mrs. Lovewright knew that there was something and she didn't have it. "There's no being cozy without a cat," she said. About The Illustrator.

Lovewright begins making up her mind that Purrless is a foul cat, she walks into the bedroom and discovers him curled and enormous, middle of the bed. Elated that she might at last have gotten the cozy-making companion she always wanted, she tries to get into bed. But Purrless wouldn’t budge, so she lays down on the very edge, with no blanket to cover he. Sometimes she was sure that she heard Purrless purring, and she would look to see the end of his tail flicking to and fro. Don’t you want to be cozy? she would ask him, and she’d stroke his soft, warm, enormous back and she’d say, Why don’t you want to?

  • Kieel
This simple litte story is a delight...wonderful illustrations and sweet story. Great for any age...It makes me want to sit down with Mrs. Lovewright and her silly kitty and have a cup of tea. I keep this book on my coffee table and so many people have loved it right along with me.'
  • Abandoned Electrical
Love it! It’s the best for reading to kids of many ages. Support the arts!
  • Dishadel
This story is a bit on the odd side, the illustrations are quirky and it isn't the typical story about a cat but it is charming and slightly sophisticated so a shart 5 year old will get the joke and kids slightly older will probably enjoy this story also.
  • Modigas
I like the pictures and the story. So did my grandchild! There were unexpected twists and turns and a funny ending.
  • Wat!?
A fine gift for young children, and those who will read this story to them. I try to order multiple copies to minimize shipping charges.
  • Bys
Not for children, and pretty much of a downer for adults!
The two stars were for the illustrations - they were very good.
  • Whatever
Very interesting
My agent suggested I read this for ideas for my own children's stories. No thank you. I found the story overly frustrating for small children. I thought the illustrations were unpleasant. Just not my style, I guess. Obviously there are many out there who like books like this one. I prefer softer and cuter.
