Comments Algonquin Cat

  • Lisa Vegan

    It’s astounding that I’d never heard of this book until my friend Elizabeth told me and some other members about it. It’s a gorgeous and charming book. It’s exquisitely, beautifully written.The illustrations are special. They’re expressive, detailed, accurate, and sophisticated.It’s a wonderful book about Hamlet, a cat living in the Algonquin Hotel, a hotel that caters to writers, actors, and other members of the artistic crowd. How cool is that! Hamlet is portrayed so well. When n [...]

    "One of my favorite children's books of all time - I even named my cats after this book![return][return]I love the internal life of Hamlet and the other cats, the way they can communicate through dreams, even to cats in other times and places - and the illustrations of the dreamscapes (and real places) are gorgeous. And the visualizations of the human characters as cats (or dogs). I especially liked the way Hamlet disguises his helpfulness so the people won't figure out how smart he is and put h [...]


  • Kasandra

    Great writing on "cat language" and custom is what makes this charming, adorable book a keeper. Sweet illustrations and plenty of 50-cent words make this a cut above the average children's book. I would have loved this at age 8-10 or so, and it's a great find for kids who love cats, or who have an interest in writing or acting. The book's a bit dated (mostly in terms of language), but not in any way that detracts from the delightful story. A great depiction of a classic New York hotel and its vi [...]

    I got this book primarily for the Hilary Knight illustrations (he's one of my all-time favorites!). The story, however, is entertaining -- a good read/mystery and is a gentle introduction to the eccentric, flamboyant and fascinating folks who made up the legendary Algonquin Circle (of which, incidently, Hilary Knight was a member).


  • Ellen Pilch

    This was a cute book about The Algonquin cat, Hamlet. It was written in 1980 and is very dated. It is categorized as Juvenille, but I don't think it is really a child's book. It is a cute book for an adult to read, although I found it a little boring. I wish someone would write a newer version with the current cat, Matilda.


  • Charlie Hersh

    A very charming and delightful book, but not as significant/powerful as other reviews suggested it was. Maybe because this is something I never read as a child? I still enjoyed it and an grateful for its central message.


  • Elizabeth

    Youthful fun book. I'm glad I read it for the second time.


  • Kathryn

    My copy arrived and the illustrations are just about the cutest things I've ever seen--plus, this kitty totally reminds me of our spunky princess-of-the-universe calico, so that helps! ;->


  • Kailey (BooksforMKs)

    Boring and long-winded.


  • Kaethe

    Cute idea, lousy execution. The whole thing is both overwrought and confusing, as all the human characters rather run together.


  • Michelle

    fun and easy to read--cute little book


  • Christiane

    What cats are really doing when they sleep all the time. Charming story of Hamlet, a cat who lives in the famous Algonquin hotel.


  • Ruhegeist

    not what I expected. traded it in for credit at Bookman's. hopefully someone else enjoys it.
