Read full description of the books:



Benno is a cat who doesn't belong to one person. He belongs to a town; to Hans, the Adler family in 3B, the Schmidts in 3A, Moshe the butcher, Frau Gerber, Mitzi Stein, and Professor Goldfarb. He spends his days visiting each person, following the daughters in the Adler & Schmidt family to school, playing nearby & getting scraps from the butcher and ear rubs from the grocer's wife. When Benno hears glass shattering, smells smoke that burns his eyes & hears terrified screams, he knows life on his street will never be the same. This life changing night is known as Kristallnacht, (the Night of Broken Glass) and caused destruction to the homes of Jews living in Germany. It's interesting to see the story from a cat's perspective, because he doesn't understand why the two young girls stop going to school together & stop talking to each other. The illustrations are collage-like and colorful and keep you interested in turning the page. The afterword includes information about Kristallnacht, which is helpful, especially in a picture book for young children. I think it was very well done & I like the idea of a cat's perspective because he's unaware of the religious differences & loves all his townspeople for who they are and how they treat him.
