From the Publisher

Amazingly, this tale was inspired by a true event. It took place in 1879 in Liège, Belgium. The city fathers attempted to train 37 cats (imagine that!) to deliver mail from the central post office to outlying villages. What the cats thought about this, and what they did and didn't do, is lost in the mists of time. All we know is that the scheme didn't turn out exactly as planned. Here's as good a guess as any as to what happened so very long ago in the historic town on the River Meuse
Children ages 6 and up will be enchanted by the awesome adventures of the plucky wannabe mail-carrier cats of Liège. It's a merry tale with a gentle message that can be enjoyed again and again as a child grows.
The cats' tale will bring on big giggles and grins. What's more, there's 'gee-whiz' Liège lore, a glossary of simple French words, even a recipe for Langues de Chat (Cat Tongues) cookies. How cool is that! This is a story for kids and their parents, and for any booklover blessed with a fondness for felines and a lively sense of fun.
Why is there trouble at the crossroads?
Whose left ear turns inside out at a silly moment?
Who takes off in a hot air balloon? How will the tale end?
