A charming, nostalgic story, perfect for gift giving
When Anna sees a family of stray cats behind her parents' doll shop, she knows she must rescue them. But her papa's rules are strict: No pets allowed. Meanwhile, Anna's cousin Tania is coming from Russia to stay with Anna's family. Anna can't wait for her to arrive and become her new best friend. But when Tania moves in, she's shy and nervous, and Anna's sisters don't seem to like Tania at all. Luckily, Anna finds a creative way to use her love of dolls and cats to bring everyone together.
With World War I raging in Europe, 11-year-old Anna is thrilled to learn that her cousin Tania is coming to stay with the family. Although Tania is shy and withdrawn when she arrives, her love of cats helps her adjust to her new family.
