Includes a folded card with pictures and traditional games. Can a household cat set out from Los Angeles across the oceans and seas to Lake Van to lay claim to his promised bride, “the queen of cats -- the Van cat, with fur as luminously white as Mount Sipan, one eye yellow and the other blue and who inhabits the shores of Lake Van?” Mur-Mur Toto, the author’s household cat, does exactly that in this contemporary folk tale. His adventures on the shores of the fabled Lake Van are sure to bring a smile to the face of any child and their family members. The color pocket of the inside back cover of the book holds a bonus surprise—an eight-panel, four-color glossy postcard with snapshots of Toto, the Bride from Van as well as stunning photographs of Lake Van, Isle of Aghtamar, Sourp Khatch church, Mount Sipan and the ruins of the Urartian castle. The insert also extends the story into various experiences for family and classroom execution through traditional Armenian folk games.
