From an old Amazon.com posting ~
From a world where learning the truth about the native life-form could transform a boy’s future. To a cat that discovers that love can even conquer time. To a cat familiar ready to tempt her wizardly master to seek out the greatest of magics.
Write-up from the back of paperback ~
Here's a Book You Can Get Your Paws Into as you explore the universe from a cat's-eye view. In this latest edition of tales about our furry friends, you'll meet bold new adventures, loyal companions, determined protectors, cats who can solve mysteries - or create them. You'll recognize such familiar felines as Skitty and Hermione, and encounter tabbies who are high-tech whiz-kids or wizard's familiars.
Let some of today's finest tale-spinners, from Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey to David Drake and Barry Longyear, lead you along trails only the cleverest of cats could find or follow, pathways to realms only reachable with the aid of our fearless, four-footed comrades.
From a world where learning the truth about the native life-form could transform a boy's future... to a cat who discovers that love can ever conquer time... to a cat familiar ready to tempt her wizardry master to seek out the greatest of magics... these are fantastical romps to claim the hearts and imaginations of cat companions everywhere.
