    I read this book to my six year old daughter over the course of three days, and we were both riveted Anton and Cecil are cats, brothers who live in the lighthouse with their mother, Sonya All the cats near the docks know to be cautious lest they be pressed into service aboard a ship, but young Gretchen is taken, throwing the cats into shock and horror Cecil is an adventurous cat who loves to join the fisherman on short jaunts, but Anton prefers to stay near home When Anton is pressed into servic [...]

    I love Algonquin books and they have a new imprint coming this fall Algonquin Young Readers I rec d a galley of this debut title and am looking forward to seeing the final product since it will have full artwork and a map I m always interested in a title when it includes a map Anton and Cecil are two brother cats with very different outlooks on life Cecil is outgoing and jumps aboard sailing ships once in a while to satisfy his curiosity, while Anton is cautious Oh, Anton doesn t hesitate to s [...]

    The book Cats at Sea Anton and Cecil 1 by Lisa Martin is a great book because the writing was descriptive, and the characters emotions were clear Though this book may have been slightly under my reading level, I wanted to give it a try, and I m glad I did This book is about how Anton, a small cat, gets trapped on a boat, and how his brother, Cecil, travels around the ocean to find him Cecil is interested about sailing, unlike his brother The brothers though complete opposites, love each other to [...]

    A sweet story about the bonds of family Anton and Cecil are brother cats who live on a wharf they are total opposites in that Cecil longs for adventure and travel, while Anton is happy snoozing and playing it safe Shockingly, though, one day Anton is scooped up and put on board a ship to be a rodent catcher Cecil catches the first ship he can in pursuit The two brothers have different, but equally amazing, adventures as they work to find their way back to each other Nicely illustrated, great cha [...]

    I love reading stories about cats and I really liked the story about Anton and Cecil who were separated and their adventures as they try to find each other again while dealing with pirates, being marooned, encountering mermaids, and meeting other animals And the eye in the sky who watches over all cats at sea added a nice mysterious quality to the story I especially enjoyed the ending when Cecil finds his brother and then meets the cook who takes them all back home All in all a wonderful adventu [...]

    A charming story, with an absorbing plot It is really beautifully written Definitely a cut above the typical offerings for this age group, particularly with regard to its use of language Overall, a lovely read.

    I enjoyed it Cecil and Anton had distinct personalities, and their adventures were convincing The illustrations were cool, too.

    When I started it, I didn t know how I would ultimately feel about this book, but I discovered it to be a really sweet story I am very glad I read it.

    Absolutely charming I cannot recommend it highly enough It would be a wonderful family read aloud for a family with kids in the 6 11 age range.

    This book was BORING to us My 1o year old and I pushed through this one over several weeks and kept hoping it might pick up several times we almost called it quits but kept going because she needed to read it for a reading challenge at school If not for that, we would have returned this one to the library after the second chapter It was one boring, too long chapter after another And the whole thing with the whale and the weird legend that was never fully explained was just odd Maybe books with t [...]

    I kind of liked this book a lot considering it is geared for younger kids I read it for MCBA and sort of liked it I would recommend it to ages 6 9

    Anton and Cecil are adorable characters At time I found the plot slow, but the diverse cast of animal human characters made up for it.

    Most cats hate water and cringe when the dreaded word bath is spoken out loud Water is only used for the rain or the liquid that keeps there nine lives going There is no way a normal cat would seek the water, let alone the sea This book is about two cats that come from a world where felines are indentured servants on various ships throughout the ocean It is a story about of two brothers that heed the call of the sea and find themselves lost Both experience unique circumstances in the vast oceans [...]

    I had such fun reading this book It is a perfect middle grade read for either boys or girls, it has something in it for both of them, and even their parents if they are reading it aloud with them, I think people of all ages can get something out of this story.Anton and Cecil are brothers, and could not be any different in personality, however, I think that it reflects well on family dynamics They still live with their Mother Sonya at a lighthouse in Nova Scotia, and travel to the docks everyday [...]
