Item Description...
When best friends Duke and Sinbad are taken in by a kind stranger, they witness the very first meeting of the legendary Cat Club of Greenwich Village, but, averse to rules, they decide they don't need to join, until the Club proves them wrong.

Publishers Description
Captains of the City Streets is another trip into the world of the legendary Cat Club of Greenwich Village. Two adventurous young cats—Sinbad and the Duke—are best friends who share a "trampish love of the free and easy life." They travel together, away from the tall buildings of the north, in search of a home where they can practice the skip and shuffle of their boxing technique. With luck, they find themselves proud residents of their very own home—an abandoned shack in an overgrown garden. Food is scarce until one man, an old sea captain new to the neighborhood, notices them and becomes their "Master of the Supper Nook."

When the duo follow their new Master home, they witness one of the first meetings of the famous Cat Club. Sinbad and the Duke decide they don't need the "rules and obligations" of membership in any club; but as they join in its business and frolics, they realize that perhaps the Club needs them.

Ready for any challenge, Sinbad and the Duke, the Captains of the City Streets, charm the Cat Club's admirers with their free spirits and "nifty" street smarts, as they grow up and ultimately find friendship and a place where they belong.

More About Esther Holden Averill

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Esther Averill (1902-1992) began her career as a storyteller drawing cartoons for her local newspaper. After graduating from Vassar College in 1923, she moved first to New York City and then to Paris, where she founded her own publishing company. The Domino Press introduced American readers to artists from all over the world. In 1941, Esther Averill returned to the United States and found a job in the New York Public Library while continuing her work as a publisher. She wrote her first book about the red-scarfed, mild-mannered cat Jenny Linsky in 1944, modeling its heroine on her own shy cat. Esther Averill would eventually write twelve more tales about Miss Linsky and her friends including the I Can Read Book, The Fire Cat, each of which was eagerly awaited by children all over the United States (and their parents, too).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Another wonderful addition to this series  May 15, 2007
The Jenny Linsky books are so delightful it is surprising that they have not been picked up and ruined by some savvy merchandising conglomerate. This one focuses on Sinbad and the Duke, two stray cats in New York City who are suspicious of but intrigued by the the "civilized" members of the Cat Club. Each cat in the series is given a distinct personality and, although the books were written some time ago, the stories are not at all dated. We first introduced our daughter to them when she was in kindergarten, and she still enjoys them as a 10-year-old tween. Highly recommended.
Jenny Rocks!  Jan 18, 2007
These books are charming, clever and fun to read. My 7 year-old niece loves them.
Quaint and refreshing  Dec 13, 2005
This was a great family read-aloud book for our cat-loving preschooler. We borrowed it from the library, and liked it so much we bought it. It's a classic that will last us many years!
The story follows two scrappy stray cats ("tramps" who are feral by choice) who balk at making friends with a quite civilized club of pet cats. The irreverent tramps at first resent the Cat Club rules (hilariously calling the club's decorous president "The Old Windbag"), but gradually see the up side of playing by the rules. The language is quaint and charming, and the story is spunky and readable.
