Pounce found Mrs. Florida Brown on a bad, bad night on the rainy side of town...Pounce de Leon, a mischievous, loving cat, adopts Mrs. Florida Brown's as his constant companion. Pounce's job is to look after the aging Mrs. Brown. If her knuckles ache, he lets her pat him for a good long time. When her tummy acts up, he sits on her until she feels better. And if she's lonely at night, he lets her curl up right there beside him. Most of all, Pounce is fascinated by the view from the jumbled house into the jungle-like garden filled with overgrown plants and trees. When Mrs. Brown speaks of a mysterious, beautiful girl and a lost fountain of youth, Pounce sets out on a quest find it for his loving owner. In this delightfully whimsical story, the award-winning Tim Wynne-Jones, author of the classic "Zoom" series, takes us on another cat's journey into discovery and adventure. Mexican painter Alfredo Tapia's art beautifully conveys the lush world of the garden where Pounce de Leon might just find the means to rejuvenate Mrs. Florida Brown and rekindle her zest for life.
