About the Author
As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a funny book because it is about a cat in a place where there are only dogs. He looks everywhere for a companion but cannot find one anywhere. To make things even worse he is losing his nine lives way to quickly. At the end of the story he finally finds his cat companion and spends his last (long) life with his new friend. This book would be good for counting because it talks about each of the cats nine lives. Also, it has some great illustrations. I would recommend this book to older elementary school kids.
Comet is a cat who is born on Nantucket Island. He has nine lives, but each day as he travels around the island, he does something that causes him to lose a life. The first life was lost due to the foxgloves he ate, the second was from books falling on him, the third when he fell of a boat and fell into the sea, the fourth when he landed in a tuba, the fifth when he fell into a strawberry milkshake, the sixth when he was thrown from a bike, the seventh when an actress threw her shoe at him because she was allergic to cats, and then the eighth when he was caught in a hurricane. After he lost his eighth life he met another cat, and then stayed at the light house.
I think this was an excellent book! I purchased this book on Nantucket in the bookstore featured in the book. I gave this to a family friends' daughter, she too enjoyed the book. I have three cats at home.
Comet's Nine Lives is a wonderful book to young people. Comet almost spent all of his lives. If you like cats with adventures, then this a GOOD book for you!!!
