Patricia Polacco's new book is about a woman named Annie. All the important events in her life happen on Thursday. She was born on a Thursday, met the love of her life on a Thursday and opened her restaurant on a Thursday. After her husband passes away and she closes the diner (not on Thursday), life becomes sad until she finds a small kitten, on a Thursday. Her life begins to turn around, all because of her cat, whom she named Thursday. This is a whimsical and humorous story. Fans of Patricia Polacco won't be disappointed.
