Summary "Un joli chat gris vit dans une maison au bord de la mer Méditerranée, chez une vieille dame. A la mort de sa maîtresse, on l'expédie avec les affaires de la défunte dans le nord de la France, à Rouen. Nostalgique de son pays d'origine, le matou décide de partir dans un long périple qui le ramènera chez lui. Il court la campagne et les villes, Paris, Chambord, le canal de Bourgogne, le mont Blanc, le pont du Gard, la montagne Sainte-Victoire et enfin la mer, où il retrouve sa maison et les caresses de ses nouveaux habitants." -- French book seller or publisher's website.
"The cat and the old woman have lived happily together for many years. But when the old woman dies, the cat is packed up with her belongings and sent north to the village where she was born. Soon the cat is forgotten. He walks the streets aimlessly until the cat embarks on a journey to find the home he was taken away from. In lyrical prose and breathtaking images, Kate Banks and Georg Hallensleben take the reader on a journey across the Norman countryside, past ancient ruins, through bustling cities, to the sparkling ports of the Mediterranean Sea and a place the cat can call home." -- cataloger's summary of description on goodreads.com
