Orlando Keeps a Dog book. A cat keeping a dog as a pet? Farfetched, yet charming. As a girl, Hale studied a cat's skeleton, and it shows in her mastery of feline structure in motion.

I had the great fortune to grow up in Buffalo, NY just across the border from Canada, where my father was able to locate some of the Orlando titles for me; the rest we found in Burmuda. I have loved and reread all of Kathleen Hale's wonderful books for almost 40 years and they are just as dear to me as when I was a child. In this episode Orlando gives in to his three kitten's pleas for a pet. How they go about the selection process will have you in stitches! The matter of what kind of pet is solved for them by the advent of Bill, the poodle, a real take-charge-kind-of-dog. Against his better judgement, Orlando allows Bill a trial period as the cat family's pet. Bill's wild charge through the countryside with Grace, Orlando's wife and the kitten's mother, is not to be missed, when she takes Bill for a "walk". Those who appreciate punning pictures should pay particular attention to the landscape during this part. How Bill learns to overcome his instincts about chasing cats and wins their hearts is the whole point of the book. The premise of a family of cats keeping a dog twenty times their size as a pet is not to be missed. Bill makes only one other brief appearence in the series, in "Orlando and The Frisky Housewife", hopefully to be re-issued soon. If you or your children love cats then this is the series for you to collect, cherish and pass down through the generations.
