Neville, Emily: It's Like This, Cat [Illustrated], v1, 06 April 2008.
This appears to be a very popular book among teenagers and younger readers.
It won the Newbery Medal for excellence in American children's literature in 1964.
Here's a quote from one web source:
"Neville uses detailed characterization to tie the story together brilliantly. Each character is convincing, behaving appropriately for his or her age. For example, Dave is unmistakably a city boy, having no problem reading maps of the city, taking the bus to restaurants and coke shops, walking down 42nd street to play ball with the boys, taking a ferry to the zoo in Brooklyn, and riding his bike to visit friends. Dave is also a typical fourteen-year-old boy, craving his independence from his parents, working for money to call his own, seeking daily adventures in the outdoors, and suddenly becoming interested in one of the opposite sex. It is through thoughtful plot and character development that Neville is able to end the story with the reader recognizing what impact that people, and even animals, can have on each other's lives."
I've taken all the illustrations (I acquired this from Gutenberg) and used them at the beginning of each chapter, exactly as from Gutenberg. Corresponding text flows right below the illustrations. If I may be allowed to say so, I think this is one of the more attractive ebooks that I've put together.
I hope you enjoy it.
