A charming, nostalgic story, perfect for gift giving

When Anna sees a family of stray cats behind her parents' doll shop, she knows she must rescue them. But her papa's rules are strict: No pets allowed. Meanwhile, Anna's cousin Tania is coming from Russia to stay with Anna's family. Anna can't wait for her to arrive and become her new best friend. But when Tania moves in, she's shy and nervous, and Anna's 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
