When Anna spots a cat in the yard behind her parents' doll shop, she is excited. Then she realizes the cat is about to have kittens--even better! And Anna has something else to look forward to: her cousin Tania is coming from Russia to stay with Anna's family. Anna already has two sisters, but she and Tania are the exact same age--eleven--and she imagines they will get along perfectly. But Tania doesn't respond to Anna's friendly overtures, and her sisters don't seem to like Tania at all. Luckily, Anna finds a creative way to use her love of dolls and cats to bring everyone together.

"This is a sweet and old-fashioned storyÉand is a fine choice for animal lovers as well." - School Library Journal

"Illustrated with appealing drawings, Anna's vivid first-person narrative makes this a worthy sequel to The Doll Shop Downstairs (2009) and a fine choice for fans of the All-of-a-Kind Family series." - Booklist.

"A quiet treasure." - Kirkus Reviews
