Christmas used to be the happiest time of the year in the big house on the hill. But this year when the clock strikes midnight on Christmas Day, it will all be over. Can Sebastian, a wily Maine Coon cat, find a way to bring his people back home or will this holiday be their last?

SciFi/Fantasy and Classics to History, Adventure and Memoirs to Social Commentary—I love and listen to it all!
Oh, God, no! A simplistic, slapped-together, predictable book that was obviously chucked out in a few weeks with a painful narration
I was looking for a warm Christmas story, and that this one had a cat sold me on it. I was sorely disappointed by the wet hot mess it was. I think I'll go back to "Jacob T. Marley" for my Christmas ya-yas.
Once again—NO! Her inflections were all over the place, and it totally disrupted the rhythm of the story. Her tone is nice, but the delivery was painful. It was as though she were reading to a three-year old, trying to lull the child to sleep, not even trying to convey character, setting, personality, purpose.
The whole thing was plain silly, only the presence of a cat made it tolerable enough to skim through the kindle version that I bought to bring the audible version price down. But listening to the book? Impossible!
Not worth even a small sum of money (which, fortunately, is all that I expended on it), and don't even THINK about using a credit on this. Look for the books on Dewey the Library Cat, or A Streetcat Named Bob for good animal stories. And definitely give Jacob T. Marley a listen for Christmas instead. This was just painful!
