Boris cover


$ 16.00

Boris is a big gray cat who loves sleeping and playing and exploring and hunting. And his owner loves him for all of his simple cat ways.
But Boris, typical as he may be, is part of a much larger story in this moving exploration of love, longing, compassion, and most of all, the continuous give-and-take of companionship.
Newbery medalist Cynthia Rylant's powerful collection of poems is sure to find its place in the hearts of readers of all ages, especially those who have been lucky enough to experience the many joys and hardships that come with true friendship.

CYNTHIA RYLANT is the acclaimed author of more than eighty books for young people, including the beloved Mr. Putter & Tabby series, the Henry and Mudge series, and the novel Missing May, which received the Newbery Medal. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
