Beautiful, both in illustrations and story. The story is about a little boy, Tony, who along with his mother help a local animal shelter during a fund raiser. The mother plays her cello, and Tony donates all his stuffed animals for the auction. While at the fundraiser Tony makes friends with a grey cat (not a kitten) named Valentine (but he never asks to adopt an animal). That night Tony misses his toys-his bed and room feel empty. Mother knows what to do, and makes him a bed on the couch and pulls out her old stuffed cat. The next day Tony misses the stuffed cat while at school, and is disappointed Mother did not bring him along with her to pick him up. When they get home he discovers Valentine is waiting for him, along with the stuffed cat-Mother adopted him.

I adore the illustrations, which are pieces of art reminding me of Jan Brett. The story is also wonderful, I love how the family volunteers, how the boy never asks for anything, never begs, and how Valentine is adopted. There is also no mention of a father, and it is okay- the story isn't lacking. It is a great story-large enough to share with a group.
