A rollicking romp told in narrative verse. It is a crisp autumn day on the farm.
The crops have been gathered and stored. Barnabus, the barnyard cat, snoozes lazily
atop his favorite haystack. But in the hills overlooking the fields, a hulking,
rumpled, brute of a rat has gathered a small army to make off with
the precious grain. As evening melds to darkness and the rats descend
on the farm, Barnabus rises to the challenge in a spirited and comical battle,
proving his true worth to the farm.
- "The Barnyard Cat's a Keeper!...Brian Heinz conjures a thrilling,
haunting scene...An exciting cat-tale with all the trimmings of
the autumn season, The Barnyard Cat will likely be a cat your child
will want to keep around for years."
Midwest Book Review
- The text is amply supported by the vibrant and detailed watercolors
of June Hajek Blair.
