Description
A trader who loves cats discovers an island plagued by rats in Inga Moore's lavishly illustrated tale about the value of treasure and the nature of home.

Captain Cat loves cats. In fact, he has more cats on his ship than he has sailors. On one voyage, he discovers a remote and lonely island where the little-girl Queen has never even seen a cat. When Captain Cat's furry companions trounce the rats infesting the island, the Queen begs Captain Cat to trade her the cats for untold treasure. Does he? Could he? What happens next? Never fear, fellow travelers! The purr-fect solution is on the horizon -- and is sure to satisfy both pet-lovers and adventurers.
