In the story, the little cat Tumford gets into all kinds of trouble but has a hard time apologizing. Because he can't face it, he runs off and hides. Tumford, of course, comes to the realization that maybe he wouldn't be so miserable if he would just try to apologize for his actions. This is a funny and entertaining book that would be suitable for 3's, 4's, Pre-K and Kindergarten.
