The Adventures of Anatole by Nancy Willard, David McPhail

Anatole and his cat, Plumpet, have a lot of adventures together.  Some are dangerous.  Most are mind-boggling.  Are you ready for adventuring?

NYRB and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

He's trying to find fennel for his grand mother's asthma and he has a ride on a ghost train,  then he meets a soldier who can't remember his name or where he grew up, he gets to ride a flying horse and more.  He plays a game of checkers with a man that cheats and manages to get him to take off his magic glasses.

His adventures aren't boring and he does his best to help everyone along the way.  His cat helps, too.  

This was a fun read.  Give it a try!
