"An imaginative, poetic, and often amusing story, written with great skill." -- Kirkus Reviews Once in a blue moon, a blue kitten is born. And that little cat knows how to hear the song of the river -- the ancient song of creation, as old as the world itself. Occasionally there have been men and women who were born knowing the song, but mortals cannot teach it to each other. Only a blue cat can do that, one who sings and believes in the song. This is the story of the blue cat sent by the river to restore the days of Bright Enchantment, when there was beauty and peace and contentment in people's hearts. But now a dark spell is enveloping Castle Town, brewing an obsession with gold and possessions. The river's song declares that riches and power will fade, while the beauty of handmade crafts endures, and the blue cat must find a mortal who will not only listen to the song but also sing it. Inspired by the real-life artistry of 19th-century Vermont crafters, this charmingly illustrated 1950 Newbery Honor winner continues to captivate young dreamers.… (mais)

Janice Holland's illustrations are really delightful. They really make the story. A sweet old fashioned tale. I was thrilled to find a GoodReads member had posted the link to the Met's illustration of the rug that inspired the book. I'll repost it here in case others missed it... https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/10013955 ( )

The story if the blue cat featured in a carpet embroidered by Zeruah Guernsey Caswell and now hanging in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
An interesting folk story but I found this way to moralistic (and a little weird) for my taste. It is not that the morals the story promotes are bad, it is just the way they are taught. Maybe that was the problem. I felt like I was being taught morals (aka hit over the head with the morals) instead of the morals being intuitively learned through the story telling. There was zero subtlety in this story. ( )

The BLUE CAT is an engaging story of how a cat enlightens and saves a Vermont town with his River Song.

Although his journey is well predicted from the start, unpredictable surprises keep it lively and magical,
notably with the splendid woodcut illustrations.

The BLUE CAT searches for his own hearth while teaching his purring River Song.

Beauty. Peace. Content.

Fewer mouse deaths would have been welcome. ( )

How did I miss this book when I was younger? Today's readers can thank Dover Publications for bringing this Newbery Honor book back into print. It's the story of a blue cat who must teach his song to others to find his place on a hearth. His song is the song of the river. He wanders around Castle Town, Vermont where he witnesses village life. It's from a simpler time and place. It's a place where spinning wheels and weaving still exist. It's a place where the local carpenter still feels the need to do his best work on the pulpit in the Lord's house, even if it means losing his $1.50 in daily wages or using some of his savings even with a baby on the way. This book gave me a sense of that time and place, and I loved it. The illustrations by Janice Holland were well-done. I received an electronic advance review copy of this title from the publisher through NetGalley for review purposes. ( )

The blue kitten was born under a blue moon in a warm nest of dried clover, Queen Anne's lace and chickory, which his mother had made for him at the foot of a forgotten haycock in a Vermont meadow.
