Does Peter continue to be a cat at the end or does he get transformed back into a human being? If he does get transformed into a human being, does his friendship with Jennie survive this transformation?
The answers to these questions form the rest of the story. I loved 'Jennie'. Peter's story was fascinating. But my favourite character in the book was Jennie. Jennie is one of coolest, most stylish, awesome cats in literature. I loved her. Though I loved the whole book, my favourite part of the book was the middle part which runs to around six chapters in which Jennie and Peter board a ship and go to Glasgow. The ship has got a motley crew who are hilarious and inefficient the captain hates sailing, one of the sailors writes cowboy stories, another sailor is big and intimidating but he likes doing embroideries , but the crew members are warm, affectionate and beautiful in surprising ways.
The way they take in Jennie and Peter and the hilarious, wonderful adventures that happen during the course of the trip is beautiful to read. I also loved the parts where Jennie inducts Peter into the life of a cat and teaches him survival skills. Paul Gallico's descriptions of cats and their lives is quite detailed and it looks like they were based on real observations. He had twenty three cats at home and it looks like that gave him a lot of opportunities to observe cats and their ways.
Towards the end of the book, I thought that something heartbreaking would happen - either Peter or Jennie would die, or Peter would become a human being again and that would be the end of their friendship. But the author springs up a third ending which was very surprising.
I cried after I read the ending.

I am glad I read my first Paul Gallico book and loved it. I can't wait to read more of his work. If you love books featuring cats or animal characters, or even if you love books featuring beautiful friendships, I will highly recommend 'Jennie'. I will leave you with one of my favourite passages from the book. He was allowed to put his hand on her. She was soft and warm, and a queer kind of throbbing was going on inside of her, which later he learned was called purring, and meant that she was comfortable and happy. What do you think about it?

This book is has a ton of great things, so let me list all the good: - This book is about cats - This book is about a boy who turned to cat my dream omg! The writer clearly has done an amazing job on researching cats.
The pace is slow but in a relaxing an I kid you not, I was about to give this a 5 stars rating. The pace is slow but in a relaxing and refreshing way rather than a boring way. So why did I deduct the star? I am one of those guys who cannot stand bad ending. And I count the ending of this book as a bad ending because: - Can we talk about just how abrupt the book ended? It didn't make much sense how suddenly Peter realizes it all. Hell, when I had a vivid dream I usually can't get back to reality until the end of the day.
And it was worse when I was a kid.

Ugh honestly the ending is just so unsatisfying. I can just kick every boy when they are being boys. Bottom note: actually I'm very tempted to just give this a 2 stars, but I'm a cat lover. Bored one day as a child, my mother recommended that I read this book. Wisely, she didn't tell me what it was about, or I might never have opened it. Instead, she simply gave me the book, and I began to read. What a terrific flight of fancy! In short, a boy who yearns for a pet cat, but is not permitted one, suffers an accident, and wakes up to find himself in a cat's body.
His adventures that follow are engrossing, entertaining, and even from time to time, thrilling. Very satisfying ending also Bored one day as a child, my mother recommended that I read this book. Very satisfying ending also. He tells amazing stories, and I very much enjoyed this one about a little boy who turned into a cat. Sounds strange to describe it that way, but it was a wonderful cat story and will be appreciated by anyone who loves cats!
I read this book long ago and still think about it.
A wonderful book for cat-lovers in particular - and for anyone dealing with feelings of being an outsider, of the loneliness of being different. Highly recommend. When reading dated books, sometimes one must look past certain past held beliefs, that today would be seen as completely wrong-headed and disgusting. With some books this is easier to do than with others. Take, for example, Five Children and It, which was published in Of course it is completely classist, racist and includes many painfully bad caricatures, which might cause modern readers to cringe.
However, it is still hilariously funny and well written and an adventure to read. Many class When reading dated books, sometimes one must look past certain past held beliefs, that today would be seen as completely wrong-headed and disgusting. Many classical books contain such ideas that are problematic for modern readers, yet that doesn't mean they are not good books or books that shouldn't be read.
That said, The Abandoned, written in the s, is a book I would never read to any child. Nor would I recommend it to anyone regardless of age or belief.
It is simply bad. Sure, at times it was funny, but not in a way that it was meant to be. The author, Paul Gallico, one can only imagine, had a rather odd relationship to cats.
The book is basically about Peter who, in an accident, somehow became a spotlessly white and therefore somehow better than your average tabby cat. As a cat he meets with an angry tom who beats him to near death then he is rescued and nursed back to health by Jennie, another cat. Gallico spends endless sentences describing her ministrations to Peter, especially her 'busy tongue' and the 'delicious feelings' it inspired in Peter. There were many such scenes throughout the book as Jennie takes care of Peter and teaches him how to be a cat, since it's obvious that without her Peter would have had a very short life as a cat.
Very quickly Jennie's role as Peter's teacher and protector shifts, until by the end she is completely reliant upon Peter and even goes as far as to say, "it's so good to have a male about who knows what to do. Apparently, according to cat law, a female cat must go with a male cat once he has claimed ownership of her.
And if she wants to go with another cat, the two 'males' must fight it out to the death. And she can't even witness it, she has to remain hidden until the victor comes to claim her and she must go with that victor. So, Peter fights the other cat and they basically kill each other and Peter becomes a boy again and gets a new kitten.

The end. One was slightly relieved not to find out what might have happened had Peter not died and reverted back to his human self. And luckily soon forgot his time as a cat as some weird dream. The book is so chock full of this bizarre and frankly not a little creepy imagery involving cats, one of whom we know is actually a little boy.
One worried a little bit about any cat put into the care of the author to tell the truth, he seems to have had a slightly Of course, it is also racist the cats sniffle at each others pedigree constantly , sexist and classist.
But, unlike Five Children and It, it had no heart to save it from being completely relegated to outdated and no longer relevant children's fiction. In fact, I was surprised to see that it was published as late as the s, it seemed so much older than that, downright Victorian in it's mindset. Only read if interested in bizarre dated books, certainly not something to bring home for the kids, it will neither amuse nor transport, but only puzzle.

Such a beautiful, simple, and poignant story, where all of the characters are such a joy to read about and sympathize with Of course, maybe I didn't read this book as a child because it does have some very dark, traumatic moments.
I remember reading Black Beauty when I was young, and going to my mother to ask what a particularly disturbing image of beaten-horse-biology meant, to which she immediately teared up and quoted me word-for-word the passage, Why didn't I ever read this as a child?!?!? I remember reading Black Beauty when I was young, and going to my mother to ask what a particularly disturbing image of beaten-horse-biology meant, to which she immediately teared up and quoted me word-for-word the passage, and we both cried the hour away So, maybe that's why I didn't read Jennie back then.
However, I probably would have survived -- we are still requiring grade-school children to read Where the Red Fern Grows , aren't we? I'm glad I finally did get my hands on a copy of this, even though it's later in life than the author probably intended. Paul Gallico captured the habits and mannerisms, and just the over-all essence of cats magnificently. And once I stop crying and hugging my kitten, and apologizing to him for the whole horrible world, I'm going to go find some chocolate Jul 29, kagami rated it it was amazing Shelves: young-adult , cats , uk , fiction.

Tears streaming down my face and all. This book is such a precious gem. It's a profound, gripping tale about a boy who turns into a cat, and his experience of the world. It's not a simplistic children's novel and it's not just about cats. I won't spoil it by saying any more - other than it's worth every minute of your life that you spent reading and thinking about it. The author is American, the book was first published in I don't remember the last time I was so deeply moved by a book.
