A Tale of Two Kitties

By Judith Graves

PEI author, screenwriter and illustrator Judith Graves has released her debut picture book, A Tale of Two Kitties. A book launch will be held at Coles Summerside from 11 am–1 pm on September 30.

Mittens and Boots have nothing in common. Nada. Zilch. Okay, maybe they live in the same house, but sharing is not in their vocabulary. They each have their own food bowls, bathing rituals and bad habits. And they like it that way. Life is glorious until IT arrives—the loveseat­—replacing their usual cozy armchairs. PAW-lease. This wasn’t love. It was revenge. Plain and simple. Payback from their humans for the litter box situation. It really wasn’t good. Soon, it’s two cantankerous cats against one loveseat, leather-bent on being the new bestie. Setting aside their differences won’t be easy for the furry adversaries, but cat naps are calling.

Virtual and in-person PAWthor visits for grades 3–6 classrooms can be booked for this fall by emailing judithgraves@ymail.com. Her sessions offer short writing and drawing sprints to inspire creativity and can be tailored. 

Graves’s YA fiction includes Exposed and Infiltrate: Retribution with Orca Book Publishers. A Tale of Two Kitties is published by Acorn Press.

Copies of A Tale of Two Kitties is available locally at Bookmark, Indigo Charlottetown and Coles Summerside, and online at acornpresscanada.com, nimbus.ca and amazon.ca.
