Summary
Cat, an unusual urban feline whose best friend is a canary, discovers the joys and perils of flying when a runaway kite whisks him up in the air, over the tops of the skyscrapers, and over the icy river.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A new edition of this classic picture book by master storyteller Michael Foreman.

Cat’s best friend is the canary in his apartment. Once their owner has gone out, Cat lets Canary out of his cage and they go up onto the roof together. Cat wishes he could fly, like all the birds around him, and when he finds a kite tangled in an aerial, it is too much of a temptation. But the kite carries him much too high and much too far, and Canary needs to marshall a crowd of feathered friends to tow the kite home. But Cat isn’t the least bit deterred: “Tomorrow, we can go to the land beyond the river, and still be back for tea!”
