House of Thirty Cats was one of the first Chapter books I read in elementary school. I recently bought a used copy online because I wanted to read the book again. The book was illustrated by Mary Chalmers. The pictures are simple black and white sketches, but I loved the drawings when I read the book as a child. The plot is pretty basic.

Innocent and sweet book for children up to age twelve.

I recently purchased this for my third grade daughter who loves cats and books as much as her mother does. I read and reread this book multiple times as a chid during 3rd and 4th grade. Sharing it with my daughter brought back fond memories....my sister also loved the book...we grew up on a farm and had lots of outside cats, including one we named Amarantha! I treasure this book and was so thrilled to find it still available to share with my own cat loving girl. A lovely story to share with any child who loves cats.

Loved this book as a kid got it for my daughter she loves it too. Even though it was used it came in great condition.

Although it's just about 30 years since I had gotten this book as a treat from my mother, it stands out in my adult mind as a sweet childhood memory. I had always been "cat crazy" (the more adult word is ailurophile) & I recall curling up with this book on my bed while bad weather raged outside. I had gotten lost in this book, the awakening emotions of an 8 year old girl meshed with those of the charcter of Sarah & the love for the cats & kittens helped to leave a positive impression on me that has lasted all these years & has led me to buy it for others "cat crazy" girls in my family & those of friends. While it is often a troublesome trial to find books that are "safe" for younger readers that offer lessons without cramming adult feelings & beliefs into malleable minds, this diamond in the rough may be one of the most perfect of all chidren's books. You may even find yourself making excuses to read this aloud to the younger children. If you have a daughter who is "cat crazy" & enjoys reading stories with emotion, this is THE book to get for her. The boys in my life who'd read it just didn't get the connection that the girls did, perhaps it has to do with girls maturing sooner. If you are looking to find a book to share with your little ones to read before bed, or simply to while away the hours when playing outside is not likely, give this a try & use it as a basis to make arts & crafts. I hope that I don't come across to drippy, but I can honestly say that this book had touched my life & is still remembered quite fondly almost 30 years later. Which books do you recall from your childhood that did the same?

This is such a beautiful book. It's full of magic and description. Mary Calhoun really has a way with words. It's about a girl named Sarah, a shy girl who loves to dream, who meet a woman, Miss Tabitha, who has over 30 cats. She takes in strays as well, and everyone thinks she's crazy. But Sarah and Miss Tabitha form an unusual friendship at once. When Miss Tabitha's neighbor tells her that she must get rid of the cats because they are disturbing his property, Sarah embarks on a desperate mission to find the 30 cats homes. And meanwhile, a nasty stray, Tarnish, is fighting the other cats and causing trouble.

I would have given this book 5 stars. But the author's twisted view of witchcraft-ranking it with fairy-lore and other fantasy-like interests- and her slightly disturbing portrayal of Tarnish as a demon-like cat prevents me from it. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful book that is perfect for any little girl with a big imagination and an appreciation for the beautiful things in life.

This is the very first book I bought with my allowance back in 1971 when I was in 6th grade. I still have that copy and had to have it rebound because I read it so much. I was lucky enough to find another copy at an antiques sale and snapped it up! I am so happy that it has been republished.
I read it at least once a year and this is the story I go to when I am feeling down. It's just one of those comfort books for me.
Now, 38 years later I will be holding the book when the public library I work in produces staff "I Love My Library" posters to be displayed in the lobby during National Library Week.

I am attempting to find this book. I never really read this book...rather it was read to me before I could read! That's the reason for only 4 stars...I might change the ranking once I find the book. When I was little, my mother read this book to me a zillion times (at my request). Just the thought of the book makes me smile. Now I have a little girl and I want to see if she will share my zeal for the book.
I just reread this old childhood favorite; it was a pleasant surprise to discover that it's not just great in my memory or a good read for sentimental reasons or because I'm a crazy cat lady, but is all around a great book. The writing, the plot, and the characters (cats included) are all fantastic...it has a sort of quiet, catlike, moonlit feel.
