The Official Diary of Jingles "Harvard-Bound" Jackson
by Arnette Jackson and Jingles; illus. by Lynn Jacobsen
Apes and chimps may be smart, but have any of them gone to Harvard? In a million years, perhaps?
So then Jingles, the first hyper-intelligent and at the same time most fearsome gray tabby cat, would surely leave apes and chimps in the dust! Why not, when he deems himself worthy of Harvard, even proving bright enough to expand the vocabulary of his mom?
And when not rationalizing and probing on the deeper meaning of things, Jingles can also show the practical aspect of his side by working hard to provide food at the tablefor three generations of his human family, mind you.
All these things he can do, aside from being his cute and cuddly natural self, of course.
