Product Description

From the Publisher

Ned Wallis knows he's forbidden to touch the rifle in the attic. But he can't resist sneaking it out of the house, just once. Before he realizes it, Ned takes a shot at a dark shadow.

When Ned returns home, he's sure he sees a face looking down at him from the attic window. Who has seen and heard him?

Ned's feelings of guilt and fear only get worse when one day, while helping an elderly neighbor, he spots a wild cat with one eye missing. Could this be the thing Ned shot at that night? How can Ned bring himself to reveal his painful secret? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One-Eyed Cat was a worthy book to read. It was the kind of book that you just can't put down after the first chapter.
Ned Wallis lived with his family near the Hudson River in Tyler, New York, in 1935. Ned was a very kind and sweet boy. He almost never spoke back to his parents, except once. Reverend James Wallis, Ned's papa, as Ned called him, was about as impeccable as you can get. Ned's mama was an ill woman who was suffering from a terrible disease that caused her hands and fingers to get horribly twisted in knots. Ned had a housekeeper, Mrs. Scallop, that Ned, his mama, and his papa
disliked. She was very cruel when it came to her cooking and cleaning. Ned also had two neighbors, Mrs. Kimball and Mrs. Scully. Mrs. Kimball helped Mrs. Wallis with her sickness, often visiting their house. Mrs. Kimball had over five children. Ned thought that her children were like a bunch of wild monkeys running around her house. At eighty years old, Mr. Scully was very feeble. Ned would help Mr. Scully, after school, with chores that he did for him around his house. After a while Ned and Mr. Scully became very good friends. Ned thought his Uncle Hilary was the greatest in the world. He traveled to whereever you could imagine. He frequently sent back presents to Ned of the places he visited.
It was almost Ned's eleventh birthday and Ned was very excited since his uncle had come home to celebrate it with him. Uncle Hilary told Ned to open the present he had brought him. After slowly and carefully unraveling the wrapping paper, Ned was surprised to find that it was a gun.
Ned's father, as being the Reverend, did not agree at all with the gun idea. Ned's father concluded as saying, "Ned, there is nothing to imagine with a gun except something that was dead.

One-eyed cat was, I have to say was the summit compared to all the other books I have read.It was the kind of book that you can't just put down after one chapter, even though I idmit I may have put it down a couple times.
Ned Wallis lived with his family near the Hudson river in Tyler, N.Y. in 1935. Ned was a very kind and sweet boy, he never talked back to his parents, except once. Reverend James Wallis, Ned's papa, as Ned called him, was about as impeccable as you can get. Ned's mama was an ill woman, she suffered from a disease. The disease caused her hands and fingers to get horribly twisted in knots. Ned also had a housekeeper, Mrs. Scallop. Ned, his mama, and his papa, very much disliked Mrs. Scallop, she was very cruel when it came to her cooking and cleaning. Ned had two neighbors,Mrs. Kimball and Mr.Scully. Mrs. Kimball helped Mrs. Wallis with her sickness, she often visited their house. Mrs. Kimball had over five children. It seemed to Ned as if her children were a bunch of wild monkeys running around her house. Mr. Scully was an extremely feeble man at eighty years old. Ned would help Mr. Scully, after school, with chores that he did for him around his house. After a while, Ned and Mr. Scully became very good friends. Then, of course, there was Ned's uncle, Uncle Hilary. Uncle Hilary, Ned thought was the greatest uncle in the world. He travelled to wherever you could imagine. He frequently sent back presents to Ned of the places he visited. He once sent him back a bronze goat from Greece, that Ned could easily fit inside the palm of his hand.
It was almost Ned's eleventh birthday. Ned was the most excited he ever could have been because Uncle Hilary had come home that day for it!! Ned was very excited, Uncle Hilary said that he could open his present form him!!

One-Eyed Cat
Paula Fox
This book teaches many lessons of life. The One-Eyed Cat is about a young eleven-year-old boy, Ned, who gets a gun for his Birthday from his uncle. His dad said, "You can have it when you are older", but sometimes kids never learn. Ned later that night went to go get it, and took it outside only to shot it once. Ned later met a cat with only one eye at his neighbor's house when he was cleaning up. He started to think, did I shot the cat? Am I the one responsible for the cat only having one eye? This book teaches kids that they should always listen to their elders, even when they think they are right. When one of his close friends died, Ned learned that life isn't always fair but he must make the best of it. He learned that when he has guilt on the shoulders, he shouldn't keep it all in side. When he felt like something is eating him away, he learned to come clean and talk to someone about how he has been feeling. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to read about life and a person learning to be more grown up.

One day, while browsing through some books, I came across a book called the One-Eyed Cat by Paula Fox. What caught my attention was that I noticed a picture of a cat on the cover. My brother read this book and highly recommended it to me because he knows I enjoy reading books about cats. I read the back of the book and it sounded interesting to me. This book was also a Newbery Honor Book. These are some reasons why I selected this book to read.
The main character in this book is a boy named, Ned Wallis. On Ned's eleventh birthday his uncle gave him a rifle. Ned's parents took the gun away from him and were going to give it back to him when he turns fourteen years old. Ned's mom is very ill in the beginning of the story. One night Ned gets the gun and goes outside. He tries out his new gun by shooting a shadow in the fog. Then he sees a cat with only one eye. Ned begins to feal guilty, because he thinks that he shot the cat. He finally confessed that he shot the cat and his parents forgived him for shooting the cat.
I like the book a lot. The book is so detailed that it gives me mental pictures in my mind. The other books I've read usually aren't that descriptive. This book is also very specific because it gives dates and ages. The author kept my attention throughout the book. This book is great!
