A large blackboard with a cartoon rendering of a cat fleeing on two legs. It reads "Kids!* Help Us Find Honya / Our bookstore cat Honya is hiding somewhere! If you can find her, we'll give you a free chocolate! / *12 and under"

Next time you come by NCB, bring in your little ones -- if they can find our bookstore cat Honya we'll give them a chocolate at checkout! Don't worry, Honya's fairly sedentary and she'll only move hiding places once a week or so.


A stuffed cat (convincing though not taxidermy) rests atop a pile of books and small chocolate bars.
