The Secret Kitten

The Secret Kitten (Pet Rescue Adventures)
by Holly Webb (Author) and Sophy Williams (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Alicia falls in love with a stray kitten whom she names Catkin. She even makes Catkin a home in the greenhouse in their yard. But how long can she keep the kitten a secret?

Snippet: Very slowly, Alicia reached out and petted the kitten’s striped head with the tips of her fingers–the fur was soft, almost silky. And then the kitten purred, so loudly that Alicia couldn’t help giggling. The noise seemed too big for such a tiny creature.

NEW Naturally Creative blog

After we moved back to California last fall, I promised myself that I would work on my own creative projects but unless I schedule it,


I know I am not the only one . . .

. . . so this summer I am using my site (renamed Naturally Creative) in a new way — to send a quote with a short creativity prompt each day (in the wee hours of the morning so my writers in Europe, Africa, and Asia can see it on the same day I send it).

If you want to play along, feel free to add a comment each day saying that you worked on your creative project 30 minutes that day as well.

The quote above was posted yesterday. Today’s quote is:

Happy creating!
