"Caroline Altman has written a charming children's book about an amusing cat who lives with a soprano and finds his way to the Opera House.... It is such an engaging story that I think kids will just love it. And I adore the illustrations. The best role of my career is that of "Nana," so I am familiar with hundreds of children's books that appeal to many ages. I think this is a winner and that there is a door open for many more books describing the adventures of Indy. It is delightful!"
--Frederica von Stade, Internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano
