It all begins when Comet walks away from the lighthouse close to his birthplace on Nantucket Island. He visits a garden, a bookstore, a boat, and a party, and at each place he gets into trouble and loses one of his lives. Comet starts to worry. He longs for a home, a place where he’ll be safe. Will he find one before he uses up all nine lives?

“Comet, a white cat with orange markings, goes through eight of his nine lives in one of [Jan] Bret’s more playful offerings. . . . The Nantucket setting is lovingly shown and expertly woven into every picture. . . . Attentive children will enjoy poring over these detailed pictures and will feel satisfied by the conclusion, which has been nicely foreshadowed throughout. Brett’s many avid fans are sure to love this book.”
