Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Charles Kraus, often known as Charles The Clown, has been entertaining children for more than 30 years. His published stories, party book, essays, audios, video, television and stage appearances have made him a favorite with kids, parents, educators and librarians, and garnered him rave reviews. Piggy and Murray, the Cross Country Cats, are genuine, honest-to-goodness cats that Charles' daughter brought to Seattle from New York City. When they climbed out of their shipping carries in the living room of their new home, they met Tabby and Buddy, two cats who already lived in the house. They also met a family of raccoons who frequented the back yard. The story follows all the adjusting that took place. Turned out the newcomers had never been outside of their apartment and had never even seen a raccoon .... until the big move!
