When Granny comes to cat-sit, she's in for a lot more than she anticipated in this sly, irreverent picture book by Rebecca Jordan-Glum (The Trouble with Penguins, Fall 2020).
"Don't worry about a thing," Granny said. "The cat will be just fine."
When Granny comes to cat-sit, she anticipates a little work, a few snuggles, and a good night's sleep. What she doesn't expect is CHAOS.
After Granny misplaces her glasses, she accidentally lets the cat out...and a raccoon in...a raccoon that looks a little like a cat. What follows is a raucous escapade that leaves in its wake one very confused Granny, one very upset cat, and one very satisfied raccoon.
Rebecca Jordan-Glum is a Los Angeles-based author-illustrator, artist, and designer. She is the author of The Trouble with Penguins, which was an Indie Best Pick picture book. Kitty is her second picture book with Roaring Brook Press.
"Irresistible fun with one rowdy raccoon." - Kirkus
"Jordan-Glum's text is spare, her jokes either marvelously underplayed or purely visual. Kitty is teeming with...choice visual touches, including cute curios like penguin salt-and-pepper shakers, color-bursting vintage-style wallpaper and intermittent glimpses of Satsuki, who, peering in the window, enjoys the show." - Shelf Awareness
