The Sign of the Cat : Duncan is a very smart boy growing up in a fishing village. The problem is that his mother encourages him to be perfectly average: she insists that he only get mediocre grades and avoid extra attention. His special talent is the ability to talk to cats - but Duncan longs more than anything for academic success. When Duncan rebels and succeeds on a standardized test, however, people start taking notice of him. And it turns out that some of those people may not have the best intentions . . . With echoes of Peter Pan and the Warriors series, Lynne Jonell tells an epic tale of bravery, adventure, and self-discovery as Duncan learns to embrace his true identity.
