"They crouch. They stalk. They circle 'round As bellies brush across the ground."

It is a tense dark world of the inner city. When the butcher's wife tosses out
a porkchop, a struggle erupts among the cats for the precious meat. Though
they may be friends on another night, Big Red must fight tooth and claw
to accomplish his noble mission and return to the warmth of his loving family.

The stark and gritty world is brought to life in rich language and
evocative rhyme. The story is further enhanced by atmospheric illustrations
laced with the moods of the night.
