|Othello, the Traveling Cat by Jacqueline Taylor
Othello the cat was perfectly happy living by the
ocean in California. He could watch the waves,
chase the seagulls and bask in the bright sun. He
had no desire to go anywhere, but when Othello’s
"family" decided to move across the country, to
Maryland, he didn’t have a choice. He had to travel in
noisy airplanes and bumpy cars — inside a box! And
there were cold, cold winters, enough to make any
cat grumpy. Just as he was getting used to his new
life, they moved again! Only this time it was Florida.
The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and
Othello could watch the waves again…
