Harry's a character in every sense of the word--a cat from an alien planet who talks a better game than most "earthlings." Needing a place to stay, he soon chooses Chicken, a young girl he orders around while he takes up residence in her room and control of her family. Narrator Coleman, best known for her role in Four Weddings and a Funeral, gives this children's story a sparkling performance that perfectly combines irony and humor. Her performance makes the fantasy almost believable. Particularly entertaining is the prickly personality of Harry. It's quite possible that parents will find this story more amusing than kids will!
