When The Man brings home a new puppy named Buttons, the spunky Siamese is no longer the center of attention. But he'll show them. "Yow-meowl! Isn't he the best hind-leg walker on four feet?
So Henry climbs a tree, stretches his whiskers for balance, and starts to tightrope-walk along a branch. But nobody is impressed -- until Buttons gets himself into a fix and only an aerial artist like Henry can save him.
Mary Calhoun's gently humorous story and Erick Ingraham's breathtaking illustrations combine in a rollicking picture-book adventure that will delight the feline daredevil's countless fans.
