ANTON AND CECIL : CATS AT SEA
New York : Algonquin Young Readers, 2013
IL 3-6, RL 6.4
Two Cats, two brothers---night and day.
Anton, sleek and grey, enjoys watching the ships as they venture in and out of the harbor. He is content to watch.
Cecil, stocky with black and whites patches is thirsty for adventure. He roams the harbor, taking daily trips on the fish boats.
Then one day all changes. Anton is swept up and thrown on a vessel to be a ratter. Bound for the seas, will Anton ever see his family and harbor again?
His capture does not go unnoticed. Cecil stows away on another vessel determined to rescue his brother.
As the two brothers face the unknown, will their paths ever cross? Will their ships survive? Will they? Will Anton and Cecil find safe harbor? (Booktalk by the NH Great Stone Face Committee)
