Grade 3-5-- This mildly entertaining animal story, complete with talking cats and ghosts, is a departure from Bauer's realistic fiction. Melinda's parents inherit Great-aunt Lydia's house and her last surviving pet, the showcat Purrloom Popcorn. But the superior white Cornish rex, accustomed to a grand (although isolated) life on the road winning ribbons, is outraged at the prospect of living an ordinary existence with an unhappy little girl. When he discovers that his one blue eye allows him to see all the ghost cats (and that of their former owner), all of whom reside in the old house, Popcorn plots with them to force his new owners to return him to the show circuit. The novel has a promising beginning, for Bauer's writing is witty and her premise is intriguing, but the plotting becomes increasingly disappointing. Popcorn's change of heart is abrupt, making the resolution forced and the intervention of the ghost cats unconvincing. Even with its flaws, however, this will suffice as moderately successful fare for animal, particularly cat, lovers. --Caroline Ward, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, NY
