Something in the Air is picturebook about a blended animal family - Ben the dog, his kitten sisters Toots and Sadie, and the gentle Mama Cat. Together they look for just the right home and family to live with. In one tricky situation after another, they stick together, until at last they find a house tended by a kind old man with the most wonderful something in the air - the smell of beef bones! The gentle color illustrations add a kindly touch to this story with a subtle but important theme: the importance of standing by one's family, no matter how mismatched individual members may appear. Highly recommended.
