A home for cats

Alicia Potter, Miss Hazeltine’s Home for Shy and Fearful Cats. Illustrated by Birgitta Sif

Published 2015 by Knopf Books for Young Readers. 40p

This is a story for cat lovers and I am not a cat person but I cannot induce this to my daughter so we have read it. And she enjoyed it. I loved the illustrations.

miss hazelnut opens the house for cats

Miss Hazeltine opens in the woods a home for shy and fearful cats. Much to her surprise she will soon have a place full of scared, timid felines and Crumb is the shiest of all.  Miss Hazeltine teaches them how to be brave. The cats’ final exam will be when their own teacher gets in trouble stuck in the dark wood. Crumb proves that even the most scared can become the bravest.

The book is a perfect gift for those who need encouragement but also for those who want to teach children how to take care of cats.
