Summary

This is the story of an old man and his old cat - a cat who'd rather eat the old man's potato soup than catch blackbirds. A cat who liked to go fishing with the old man and sit on the bow of his boat, her face into the wind, like she was an ornament on the bonnet of a car.

Cat Who Liked Potato Soup Summary

Cat Who Liked Potato Soup by Farish Terry

There was an old man, an ol' Texas boy, country raised, don't you know. He lived on Chatterpie Road, just him and an uppity old cat - a cat who'd rather eat the old man's potato soup than catch blackbirds. A cat who liked to go fishing with the old man and sit on the bow of his boat, her face into the wind, like she was an ornament on the bonnet of a car. A cat the old man loved dearly - but not so's you'd notice! Terry Farish and Barry Root have created a perfect pair of curmudgeons in this wry, unconventional love story.

About Farish Terry

Terry Farish is the author of several novels for young adults. She says of The Cat Who Liked Potato Soup, "The story is based on our old-timer neighbour, Jimmy Fowler. Jimmy said he didn't have a cat, but if we got one, would we name it after him? And the idea sprang from there." Terry lives in New Hampshire, USA. Barry Root says, "I've always been pro-cat, although our house is divided on the subject. To appreciate a cat requires a certain amount of abstraction I think - and a sense of humour." Barry is the illustrator of several picture books for children. He lives in Pennsylvania, USA.
