Read full description of the books:
I remember seeing the tv show based on this (I think, anyway) when I was a kid and wishing it was on after school so I could watch it. It looked so cute!
This book is just as cute as the series, really - at least the story is. Since I listened to the audio book I have no idea if this is even a picture book (it's pretty short, though, so I'm guessing it is).
Told as a folktale, "The Chinese Siamese Cat" is about a kitten named Sagwa, who caused all Chinese cats after her to have ink-dark markings (view spoiler)[ as well as how she helped a grumpy magistrate find happiness by winning over the hearts of his people (hide spoiler)].
Book written & read by Amy Tan (Phoenix books version).

Read information about the authorAmy Tan (Chinese: 譚恩美; pinyin: Tán Ēnměi; born February 19, 1952) is an American writer whose works explore mother-daughter relationships and what it means to grow up as a first generation Asian American. In 1993, Tan's adaptation of her most popular fiction work, The Joy Luck Club, became a commercially successful film.
She has written several other books, including The Kitchen God's Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses, and The Bonesetter's Daughter, and a collection of non-fiction essays entitled The Opposite of Fate: A Book of Musings. Her most recent book, Saving Fish From Drowning, explores the tribulations experienced by a group of people who disappear while on an art expedition into the jungles of Burma. In addition, Tan has written two children's books: The Moon Lady (1992) and Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat (1994), which was turned into an animated series airing on PBS. She has also appeared on PBS in a short spot on encouraging children to write.
Currently, she is the literary editor for West, Los Angeles Times' Sunday magazine.
