The book was listed to be used in our school curriculum. I was not impressed with the content of the book and the condition was okay...a bit tattered.

When an adult gives their child the awesome of responsibility of naming the new family pet, the process is either instantaneous and regrettable (explaining the millions of cats and dogs out there named Ariel, Jasmine, Tinker Bell, and Spongebob Squarepants) or drawn out and unsatisfying. It is very very hard to name a beloved animal. Author Lawrence Pringle says in the bookflap that of his books, "he is especially pleased with those based on his own family life", like this one. As a result, "Naming the Cat" isn't exactly new territory, original material, or even particularly interesting fodder for thought. It's just a nice simple story about a family and their quest to give a new feline companion just the right moniker.

When the cat arrived on the family's doorstep he instantaneously became a part of their lives. No one in the neighborhood claims him, after all, so they adopt him forthwith and get on with the tedious process of slapping him with an appropriate handle. This proves to be far more difficult than initially expected. It isn't that anybody lacks for ideas. People throw out potential titles like "Bubba", "Scruggs", and "Captain Midnight" (my personal favorite). As time goes on they hear a number of names from a number of sources. A quick trip to the musical "Cats", suggests such T.S. Eliot inspired words as "Macavity", "Shimbleshanks", and "Rumpleteaser". But none of them seem to fit the cat. Finally, after a series of near mishaps and close shaves, the obvious name of "Lucky" occurs to the family. And sticks.

Not much drama in this book. Pringle makes up for this by including a quick action sequence in which the hitherto unnamed cat makes a break from a classroom, dives out a window, and lands in a cushy sandbox. Otherwise, it's a pretty tame book. Pringle's story is accompanied by artist Katherine Potter's mild colors. The cat of the title appears to be a bit like a furry whiskered Buddha (a name that, surprisingly, does not occur to the family). He's not particularly catlike. A little too circular. But kids won't care and Potter does some amusing things with the various names suggested. With each potential title, she draws the cat living out his new name. When the name Vanilla Fudge is suggested, you see the cat sitting in a bowl of ice cream. When the name Scruggs comes up, he's yodeling in overalls to his own cat-sized banjo. Mild amusement all around.

Nothing about this book is going to really stick with the child who reads it for very long. This is obviously a filler book. It's not either the author nor the illustrator's best work, nor was it intended to be. It's just a nice title for any kid who knows from firsthand experience the trials and tribulations of giving a family pet an acceptable name.

What fun! Even if you aren't a cat lover, you'll enjoy the family's predicament as they try to find the perfect name for their newly adopted cat. Of course the cat's shenanigans and adventures result in a descriptive name that sticks.
This is a great story for families to read together. It's exciting for the young ones and engaging for their parents.
If a cat has ever adopted you, you'll identify with this story. Great job, Mr. Pringle and Ms. Potter!
