Kitty in the City





So exciting to see a book I illustrated released!! Bennie Bear's Dream is now available to buy on Amazon. The illustrations were done in watercolor and inks and everyone seems to love the book!

Bennie Bear has a simple dream…all he wants is a child to love him. Even though other bears think it may never happen, Bennie never gives up. This lovable bear is full of happiness and positive energy, and readers will instantly bond with him, cheer him on and understand the importance of perseverance and love. 

Well as you know I have a cat called Mouse. Who is my muse and even has her own Instagram. Look no fashionable kitty these days is without her own personal instagram. Mouse is an influencer, a mover and a shaker. She is also quite unique. Even though she is quite curious, she has never caught an animal. Yes I have seen her chasing bunnies in the yard. I have seen her chasing squirrels in the yard. I even saw a squirrel chase her up the electrical pole. But she is hopelessly slow in catching anything, maybe her mom never taught her. In any case, all the critters in our yard know they can breathe a huge sigh of relief!

So sooner or later it had to happen. I wrote a children's book about Mouse. It is called Kitty in the City - the cat who just wanted to sing. This is partly because Mouse 'sings' an awful lot. The story is about a theatrical cat who can't stop singing in her garden, and eventually breaks free, wandering the streets of Manhattan before sneaking into a Broadway show and becoming a star!! 


Cat tested, artist approved

  6. Nice to meet you Mouse. Tuxies are da bomb. Concats to having a book written about you. Even better that you wrote the book even though your human takes credit.
