The Dancing Cats of Applesap

(1984)
A novel by

 
 
In a forgotten small town, one girl and a hundred cats are about to do something spectacular

Applesap is a small town smack dab in the middle of New York state, and beyond that geographical oddity, there isn't much special about it. It has a dress shop, a run-down movie theater, and two old-fashioned drug stores: Jiggs' and the Super Queen. But nobody goes to Jiggs'. The roof is leaky, the seats are sticky, and the flies have built a kingdom around the soda fountain. Worst of all are the cats - hundreds of strays who wander in off the street to make the store their home. Jiggs' is a place for creatures who want to hide from the world, and so it is perfect for Melba.

A shy young girl who's too timid to talk to other children, Melba makes Jiggs' her home-away-from-home. As the old store nears bankruptcy, Melba comes up with a wild plan that will save the pharmacy, make Applesap famous, and change her life forever.

This ebook features a personal history by Janet Taylor Lisle including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's own collection.
