Praise for Paul Gallico’s classic cat tale, ‘The Abandoned’

In this past weekend’s Wall Street Journal, Meghan Cox Gurdon wrote, “Many adults have sought over the years to recall the strange, emotionally rich adventure told in The Abandoned. It is these readers—and bookish current children ages 10 and older—who will most appreciate the book’s handsome reissue.” Gurdon goes on to suggest that this 1950 novel “will perhaps snag in the imagination of a new generation of readers.”
