The Book

One Sunday morning while everyone is sleeping Olive creeps downstairs to have a bite to eat.  She hears a sound at the kitchen  window and proceeds to discover the source of it.  She finds an adorable little kitten outside and opens the window to let the little creature in.  Olive notices that the kitten isn't wearing a collar and seems to be lost or abandoned... and hungry too.   

When Olive's mother comes down stairs Olive excitedly asks if she can keep the precious little furry bundle.  Her mom says that Olive can feed the kitten and look after her but if someone comes looking for her she has to go home. 

Delighted Olive and her new kitten friend are inseparable for seven days but on the eighth day the kitten mysteriously vanishes.  There is no sign of her at all.  Olive and her parents go out searching to see if they can find her.  Will their search be successful and if they can't locate her how will this make Olive feel?  

I love the colourful, kid-friendly illustrations and the discussions that they will invoke. The author has included a segment of ways to help children cope with sadness at the back of the book.  They are a wonderful resource for parents, caregivers or educators.  I highly recommend this book.
