Homer is a cat who treasures silence and solitude. He lives in a quiet house with a quiet woman. When she is away, he plays peacefully with yarns and feathers.
But one day a loud crash sends him into the street and he begins a quest to find a quiet place to rest. He tries the post office, the fire station and even an empty boxcar. Homer is finally happy in the library.
Reeve Lindbergh has written a children's book that will also appeal to adults who long for some peace and quiet. More people these days are visiting monasteries and retreat centers in a quest for silence and solitude.
So Homer has plenty of people, both young and old, who know just what he's looking for (Candlewick Press).
