Holly: The True Story of a Cat

Holly: The True Story of a Cat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a popular author/illustrator, the enchanting story of holly the cat — ideal for Christmas and all year long.

She was just a tiny kitten and she was abandoned. Someone found her and gave her to us. Because it was nearly Christmas, we called her Holly.

Holly is an abandoned kitten adopted at Christmastime. Shy at first, she slowly gains more and more confidence in her new home. Sweetly, and gently, and sometimes humorously, she quickly becomes a member of the family.

Everyone who has ever known or loved a cat will instantly recognize the lovable Holly. A true story, Holly's tale is an ideal example of how pets touch our lives in wonderful ways.

Synopsis:

From popular author/illustrator Ruth Brown comes this true story of a tiny, abandoned kitten given to Brown's family near Christmas, and how Holly (as she was named) quickly becomes a member of the family. Full-color illustrations.
