Felix is a fine cat with a lot of friends.  He goes on whirlwind tours to visit his family all over the world. He goes to India with its golden temples, meets tigers,  and has prawns and scrambled eggs. He travels to China to visit his mysterious cousins, the snow leopards.  They offer him tea and herrings.  Next, he stops in the Russian steppes to visit his cousin Mr. Lynx and is offered  blinis and caviar..  The next stop is the United States where pumas give him steak.  Next is the rainforest of Brazil to visit panthers who give him kebabs. His last stop is the African savannah where lions give him an acacia branch.  Felix finally goes home to his food bowl, his balcony, and his cozy pillow. Rich, colorful artwork accompanies Felix on his travels. mjw
