Mary Grandpré proves once more that her success as illustrator to the Harry Potter series was no fluke. Her rounded forms, changes of color (warmth when there is wealth, coolness when poverty and loneliness appear) and elongated features are ideally suited to this tale of a stubborn, proud old woman and her amiable, helpful feline companion.

The story is a familiar one—a proud, rich miser is humbled by loss and privation and the realization of how companionship matters far more than wealth. Chin Yu Min is a lucky woman in many ways but it takes her time to appreciate how rich her life is, even when she falls on hard times.

Winningly written and illustrated with depth and charm, “Chin Yu Min and the Ginger Cat” is a sweet lesson in humility, companionship and true friendship.
