Miranda was a cat of many accomplishments: she was a good mother; she could sing; she had once chased sixteen dogs, causing them to flee in disgrace. Long ago, she and her daughter Punka lived in Rome in a beautiful villa with a senator and his family. But when the city was invaded by barbarians, the family fled to safety—without the cats. Left behind in the burning city, Miranda made her way through crowded streets with Punka, collecting motherless kittens as she went. At last she arrived at the vast Colosseum, where she established a haven. There it was, assisted by the valient Punka, that she preserved the lives of a multitude of kittens and cats who were to become the noble ancestors of the cats of modern Rome.

    " Edward Ardizzone illustrated the version of the book I read, which I found in a cast-off heap. Children wild about cats may enjoy this story, set in Ancient Rome. The character names were not very original and Estes has written much better material. "

    " A solid read for those kids who love an animal story. Quick and easy and pretty light - I like the way it weaves in teh cats of Rome, which could make a fun little research project for the kitty-obsessed kid. Can see why it remains in print! "

A children’s librarian for many years, she launched her writing career with the publication of The Moffats in 1941. Two of her outstanding books about the Moffats—Rufus M. and The Middle Moffat—were Newbery Honorees, as was her short novel The Hundred Dresses. She won the Newbery Medal for Ginger Pye.
