With his extraordinary ear for the heart's language, the author/artist captures the feeling of one cat yearning to find another -- and succeeding. The story is as simple as that. As grand as that. And the pictures, whose changing colors mark emotion as clearly as any words, move the action along at a rhythmic, almost musical clip. At the opening a white kitty is "Unlike the rest. Unlucky, alone." He takes lonesome comfort in "rows and rows of roses," then, stalwart, sets out on his own. "He sees seas, flowers and fliers, a breeze, trees, high wide skies, grass and moss, round mounds, heaps of stones...." But not his heart's desire. Finally, as luck would have it, he finds her as the title promises -- his like across a tawny page: another kitty, waiting. One look, one hug, and all the world is golden.
