Published by D. Lothrop Company. This book was written in collaboration with family & friends. Each writer told the story of an illustration of a girl and her cat, as they saw it. They were published in The Pansy (the children's magazine edited by Isabella Macdonald Alden) one story at a time and the group of writers promised not to read each others' version until it was published. Eventually the collection of stories was put into book form by the publisher.
