The Ghost of Opalina

The Ghost of Opalina

(1967)
Or Nine lives
A novel by

 
The drawing on the cover of this book, and the subtitle above, make it quite clear that the story of Opalina involves a cat. It can even be assumed to contain a ghost cat. Beyond that, the reader must proceed to devour this book in order to discover the amazing variety of its contents.

About all we have room for here is to say that this is more than the tory of a haunted house; it is the story of the haunt. And what a delectable, willful, all-seeing, unpredictable haunt this eighteenth-century White Persian proves to be, as she inscrutably observes succeeding generations of children living, playing, quarreling, adventuring, growing up and away from "her" house.

The drawings in the text by the distinguished artist-author help to introduce the reader to as beguiling an album of character as ever graced a family tree.
