Amber Cat was a good book; of course, it was confusing, as all 2 of the 2 books (Dog Friday, Amber Cat) that I read so far by Hilary McKay were. It was confusing as in it didn't exactly give some important details; some so important that you couldn't exactly picture the few scenes, although there were options floating around my head when I read these parts, but none were right, and I will now never know, given to the fact that the author didn't explain the parts and details well. enough so that I could see them in my head. But the book made a point, unlike a lot of other books,.

An absolutely delightful book. The children are written beautifully Sundance is perhaps one of the greatest characters in children's literature. I read this every year to my students and delight in it every time. The children love it as well when Sundance discovers the tides, "THE MOON SUCKS WHALES?! Why didn't anyone tell me?"

Robin Brogan doesn't mind having chicken pox nearly so much since his friend Dan has it too. Mrs. Brogan invites Dan to recover at their house since his mother works outside the home. Mrs. Brogan and Robin live at Porridge Hall, her childhood home, which is now a beachside Bed and Breakfast inn.

Just when Robin and Dan are getting bored, Sun Dance, Robyn's younger next door neighbor, gets spots too and is allowed to visit. After television, games, and reading, the boys begin telling ghost stories. Sun Dance is very susceptible to ghosts. He's personally acquainted with many.

Mrs. Brogan tells them about summer visitors she had when she was their age. She and her visitors spent all but the rainiest days playing on the beach across from Porridge Hall. The three friends together were more than enough for her poor mom and dad, but her parents didn't know that their time at the beach was being enlivened by their new friend Harriet. She had more ideas than even Nick, the most fearless and luckiest of the group. One of those ideas put Nick in grave danger.

The Amber Cat is a companion book to Dog Friday and Dolphin Luck which also take place at Porridge Hall. It's also a wonderful ghost story, told with wit and humor and populated by captivating characters.

Amber Cat was a good book; of course, it was confusing, as all 2 of the 2 books (Dog Friday, Amber Cat) that I read so far by Hilary McKay were. It was confusing as in it didn't exactly give some important details; some so important that you couldn't exactly picture the few scenes, although there were options floating around my head when I read these parts, but none were right, and I will now never know, given to the fact that the author didn't explain the parts and details well enough so that I could see them in my head. But the book made a point, unlike a lot of other books, and it didn't carry on and on with one boring subject, as some other books do also. I also think that Sun Dance's mind was a little jumbled, and that Mrs. Brogan's stories about her childhood were very fascinating and sounded fun. I think that when Robin was going to build a raft, it was not a good idea either. Harriet was very interested and I really enjoyed reading about her and everybody else.

Robin Brogan,Mrs. Borgan Robin's mother and Robin's best friend Dan are the main characters of the story. The Amber Cat is a sequel to Dog Friday and if you like it you will for sure like the Amber Cat. I read Dog Friday first and liked it but if you read Amber Cat first you might not understand it very well. The Amber Cat goes back to when Robin's mother was a kid. Robin's mother has a friend that was alive when her parents were kids. Mrs. Borgan was telling this story when Robin , Dan, and Sun Dance had the Chicken pox. Robin's uncle Charlie was there one summer when they were kids. He hasn't seen Robin since his dad died. Charlie, Robin's uncle, was coming to visit Robin and his mother. The Amber Cat goes back to when Robins mother was a kid.Why I like these books is because they are strange books and thats the tipe of books that I like. Robin finds a dog and since he found him on Friday Robin calls him Friday.

This was one month's selection for our Mother-Daughter reading group. Half the group couldn't get past the first three chapters (that's never happened before!), and the other half of the group persevered and finished the book, and LOVED it. The beginning is very confusing and there are so many characters introduced, that it's hard to keep track of who's who. Right up until the last chapter, there are things that are unexplained, so it's like putting a puzzle together AFTER you've read the book. This is a book best read silently by yourself---too complex to read aloud. The author does a wonderful job of weaving magic about how we influence the lives of those around us, as well as those who come after, and how others who came before have influenced our lives. My daughters (9 and 10) and I loved this book.

This book is about a mother who stays home with three boys while they have the Chicken Pox. She tells them an amazing story about when she was 11 and played at the beach with her cousins and a mysterious girl named Hillary. The author made me feel like I was right there watching them. I felt like I was in a secret world. There were many characters with interesting personalities. The ending left me thinking everything through again in my mind. I would highly recommend this book!
