Little Kitty wouldn’t exactly call herself a cat burglar. She just likes to bring back the occasional gift for her humans…
A lovely story for younger readers and adults alike – perfect for reading together. Beautifully illustrated by Catie Atkinson and designed by Rachel Lawston.
What we say – review by Nikki Mason:
Well, not only is this a delightful story for kids, it’s also for a super good cause: 100% of the money raised from its sales will go to Alzheimer’s Research UK – why wouldn’t you buy this book?
I read the story with my 6-year-old niece and she found the story a lot of fun and it fully held her attention. It was a fun book to read for me because I got to help act out Little Kitty’s feline movements and personality traits, which are so beautifully described. Adults reading this will be thrilled at the wittily attributed qualities of the cat: the vanity, the self-importance and the sense of entitlement.
My favourite feature of the book was the relationship between the endearingly cheeky kitten and her elderly neighbour, which left both my niece and I feeling all warm and fuzzy.
WHATS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE BOOK?
The book was written by a group of authors who donated their time free of charge.
