Tallulah the village cat is passionately drawn to the theater in Victoria-by-the-Sea, Prince Edward Island. Her search to fit in takes readers on a humorous behind-the-scenes tour of a theater. Her rise from being most unwelcome to greatly appreciated is a story of the values of persistence, loyalty and following one's bliss.

CM Magazine - December 20, 2013

"The Prince Edward Island setting is enchanting and absolutely perfect for the background of this wonderful book. The rhythm of the story makes it an excellent choice for a read-aloud."
