Kato's Grand Adventure


An adventure story written from the perspective of a lost kitten. Kato is the cutest little gray/black striped young tabby with white paws and a rust-colored nose. He sets out to look for his missing sister. In the process, he gets lost in the woods near a rushing stream.
With the help of a rabbit, then an owl, and finally a coyote, he overcomes many obstacles on his journey. Kato learns to take chances and accept help from the most unlikely of characters. He reunites with his sister and arrives safely home. Perfect to be read aloud to children and grandchildren at an early age. It can then be an enjoyable chapter book for anyone with a 4th or 5th-grade reading level—original illustrations by the author. Pick up a copy through Amazon.
