Benjamin West and His Cat Grimalkin

by Marguerite Henry

This is the story of a Quaker lad and his cat who lived in America when Pennsylvania was still an English province, and the Indians were saying, "Itah! Good be to you!" Benjamin's father kept Door-Latch Inn in the County of Chester. Benjamin had four brothers-John, Thomas, Samuel and Joseph-and five sisters named Rachel, Sarah, Hannah, Mary and Elizabeth. He had a niece named Sally, too. Benjamin's family were all Quakers. Papa was the best Quaker of them all. When he prayed, his voice trembled and quaked until the very roof timbers shook! Benjamin's fingers often itched to draw "images" of people or animals or landscapes. But Mama and Papa didn't approve. They thought pictures were needless. They said images should be carried in the heart, that pictures were gay and gaudy and showed a worldly spirit. Of course they had no pictures in Door- Latch Inn. Benjamin never saw one until he grew up to be seven years old and painted one himself. Grimalkin, the glossy black cat, suggested-for he could almost talk-that Benjamin make an image of little Sally, and after that he drew so many that everybody knew he could be nothing but an artist. Some people say it was the Mohawk Indians who helped Benjamin win fame and fortune as an artist. Some say it was an artist and seaman by the name of William Williams. And some insist that it was Uncle Phineas, a merchant of Philadelphia. But if Benjamin West himself could have settled the question, he would probably say it was his cat Grimalkin.

Cinnabar the One O'Clock Fox

by Marguerite Henry

"Tally-ho!" It was George Washington himself who sighted the flying form of the One O'Clock Fox. And "Gone away!" the Huntsman's horn sounded, as with a jaunty flick of his brush Cinnabar dared the hounds to catch him. Boys and girls who have loved Misty, King of the Wind, and Brighty will find in the gay and dauntless Cinnabar another unforgettable character brought glowingly to life by the magical touch of Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis. For this extraordinary fox, so legend says, loved the excitement of the chase so much that on foxhunting days he would show himself promptly at the hour of one to lead the hunt a fast and thrilling race through the woods and fields of Mount Vernon. To George Washington and the other gentlemen of Virginia he was known affectionately as "the One O'Clock Fox." But the hunters saw only one side of Cinnabar. It has remained for Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis to tell in merry and fascinating detail the story of Cinnabar's home life as well-of his wife Vicky, who played the flute; of the four mischievous cubs, Rascal, Pascal, Merry, and Mischief; of their cozy den with the hourglass on the mantel; of Cinnabar's prowess as a hunter.
