Hello Katzenworld readers!
Odie the Stray Kitten, by Kristen Mott, is the story of a little orange kitten who loses his family, and ends up alone in the cold with nowhere to go. He finds a barn to take shelter from the cold, where he stays until he is found by a kind girl who takes him in.
Odie is the star of this adorable, gorgeously illustrated book. Each double-page spread features one full page of artwork, and part of the story.
Odie’s Best Friend, the second book, introduces us in more detail to Odie’s friend, Bandit, and the story of how he came to be living with the girl that they both love.
These books would make an excellent read (or read to!) for young animal lovers, cat lovers in particular! Odie’s story is heartwarming and sweet, and shows us that, even when the outlook isn’t great, we can be surprised by the love and kindness of others. Odie the Stray Kitten was awarded a Gold Literary Classics 2014 award in the Picture Book Early Reader category.
The third book in the series is currently in production, and should be available around Summer 2015. 🙂
