Reviews about Jenny and the Cat Club: A Collection of Favorite Stories about Jenny Linsky (Jenny's Cat Club) (7):
Warianys
There is something extremely charming about these stories. they are old fashioned in the best cozy feeling way. They are quirky and funny and very readable and not boring at all. I am really glad I read it, and I am 29. The illustrations are adorable. the whole book is a work of art and i agree, a children's book classic in that peculiar odd/funny/mysterious/charming way the best children's books have.

Our four year old son adores this book -- and now all the Cat Club series. Jenny is shy but brave, curious but caring, providing great starting points for conversations about friendship, family and facing challenges. We read this as a bedtime book and it's a favorite choice. In the six months that we've owned it, we've read it in full at least 20 times.

There is a way to write, that is simple, yet not condescending. An economy of words that wraps up emotions, actions and adventures with charm and wit while being appropriate for the young and entertaining even for older readers. Knowing this, it's easy and always exciting to come across a classic book. This book IS a classic and I'd never heard of it until this year. I knew it as soon as I opened it and read the first bit, then watched my 7 year old daughter glow about it. We're a homeschooling family and so we buy a lot of books (our local library is dismal, living in a very rural area) to keep our children reading and interested. The whole New York Times review of books is a treasure trove for us that we're excited to explore. In these times we find that reading for the young has become one poor, grouchy, rude, second rate Scholastic book after another, so we search pretty rigorously for books just like this. Our 7 year old, found these a bit below her reading level, but it doesn't change the fact that she loved to read them, they made a reading experience that she'll remember, that was positive, and that's what it's all about. There are no one star reviews for a reason, buy this book.

I have purchased many copies of this book. We first discovered it at the library when my daughters were young (mid 80's) and read every book in the series. I was delighted to see they have been reissued and have purchased every one for my own library. I read Jenny and the Cat Club every year to my first graders, and I have frequently purchased it to give as a gift to volunteers who have helped in my classroom (so they can read it to their children :)). The stories are delightful and imaginative, but I especially love them because Jenny displays such outstanding character. She's not perfect but in the long run she always chooses to do what is right.

I first read the Jenny Linsky books when I was a very small child, and loved them so much that when I was allowed to get a kitten of my own, I chose a little black one, just like Jenny Linsky.These books became part of my childhood memories-when the cats were out ,my mother would say they "were at a cat club meeting ".I would imagine them dancing the sailor's hornpipe,one playing the nose flute as accompaniment.The influence of the Jenny Linsky books stayed with me, and because of them, I have always had black cats, and learned how special they are. The stories in "Jenny and the Cat Club"are as enchanting as I remember, the illustrations wonderful.Today the stories might be considered "tame" in comparison with our animated space going super hero fascination, but they still have great power to charm a young child's imaginings, and an old lady's memories.Highly recommended!

Oh my lord. The Cat Club is probably the cutest collection of stories ever written. Old pal Pickles the Fire Cat shows up and shows his good nature, Jenny Linsky learns lessons about friendship, self esteem, kindness, empathy and bravery. Delightful illustrations and a great easy reader for kids. My sons adore this book and so do I!
Samulkis
these stories are adorable and great fun for kitty lovers of all ages. We own Pickles the Fire Cat by Esther and when I found out she had written more kitty stories I immediately bought the book for my 8yr old daughter and she is so happy with the book she takes it everywhere with her.
We adore this book and read at least one story (often two or three!) nightly to our 4.5 and 2.5 year olds. They love to pretend to be the various cats and we love the writing style. It's perfect!
