    1. Wallace, I 2008 The sleeping porch Berkely, California Groundwood Books It is a hot, summer night The main charcter Brando and his parents were so hot that they moved to cots located on the back porch, hoping to catch a little breeze A cat then sneaks into the porch through a window screen and begins talking to Brando The cat said that he has been asleep forever, since the War of 1812 Then the cat asks him if he is coming with him The breeze in the air took them both higher and higher into the s [...]
