One Dark Night

One Dark Night by Hazel Hutchins

An exciting picture book about a little boy and his grandparents one stormy night. The little boy sees a cat out in the storm and, fearing for her safety, opens the door for her. She comes in, carrying something in her mouth. It turns out to be a kitten. She makes several more trips out into the storm, bringing a kitten back each time. The human family welcomes the cat family into their home and lives in a sweet story of familial devotion and love. The illustrations done in oil paint add to the drama of the story.
