International Cat Day is coming up on August 8th and you can get ready to mark the holiday by checking out some great books about cats and kittens from the library. If you don’t know where to start, here are some of my favorite feline books. All three books are available through the Terrebonne Parish Library System, and you can reserve a copy today at www.mytpl.org.
The Very Fluffy Kitty, Papillon
Written and Illustrated by A.N. Kang
Papillon is a fluffy kitty. A VERY fluffy kitty. So fluffy, in fact, that he floats up in the air! Miss Tilly tries her best to get him to not float, but Papillon did not like it. One day, when Papillon was floating around his home, he finds himself floating right out the window and now he is lost. Will Papillon be able to float his way home?
Written and Illustrated by David Wiesner
Mr. Wuffles is a cat and he has a lot of toys. So many toys, in fact, that he doesn’t notice the new, shiny, silver object on the floor next to them. But soon he takes notice and he is in for a surprise. This wordless picture book is a great opportunity for readers to work together to tell the story of Mr. Wuffles and his new found toy.
