ABOUT THE KITTEN STORY: A MOSTLY TRUE TALE:
When a cat-loving family decides to bring home a pet, their quest reveals the highs and lows of everyday family life in this heartwarming story—perfect for kitten lovers and everyone who’s ever longed for a pet.
Finally, it's time for this family to adopt a pet of their own! But big decisions remain to be made. The two children, Tulip and Rosie, definitely want a kitten. But Daddy insists an older cat is best. No one can agree about what name to give the new family member, either. When Mommy and Rosie visit a shelter to choose their pet, yet another problem arises and they must go home empty-handed. This deftly paced story from best-selling author Emily Jenkins—winsomely narrated by Mommy, who just wants to find peaceful solutions—highlights themes of finding family unity among realistic conflict and overcoming disappointment. Readers will rejoice along with the family as, finally, they welcome home their very own, absolutely wonderful kitten.
ABOUT BRITTANY CICCHESE:
Brittany Cicchese, a public librarian and illustrator, lives with her family in Denver, Colorado. When Brittany and her husband went to the animal shelter to adopt a new pet, they fully intended to take home a kitten. Instead they left with Sherbert, a three-year-old cat who completely stole their hearts. The Kitten Story is Brittany’s picture book debut.
