Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library much earlier in the week than normal, though there is a furry good reason fur this.

Last week I got a wunderful surprise in the post from my lovely Auwnty Ellen who writes the fabulous blog 15&Meowing, anyhoo I digress so in the envelope was her latest book fur younger readers which I thought was absolutely pawesome.

So I thought, fantastic I can review that next week... and then it hit me, not literally just figuratively that I only had one more review to go before my summer vay-cay and that was already booked up and had been fur a couple of weeks.

OMC, mew can imagine my horror when I realised I hadn't got a spare slot before my impending jolly hollies - OH MY WHAT A TODO!

So I had a little meltdown, while I considered my options...

Then it hit me again, not literally just figuratively that I'd have an inbetweener slot, so here we are with review 99.5! MOL

Today I'm sharing

Here's a small snippet of the book blurb:

I Am Not a Skunk is Ellen Pilch's second picture book. It is about a homeless kitty excited to find a family, but must first convince them she is not a skunk. It is loosely based on how the author's cat, Emmy came to live with her.

I reviewed Auwnty Ellen's furst book called Prancie's Prayer last October, which I heartily recommend, and I was absolutely delighted to get a surprise copy of; I Am Not A Skunk in the post.

This is such a cute book fur youngsters and adults alike, a great little story and it has NO SKUNKS in it whatsoeffur! MOL 

The illustrations are amazing and really do enhance the tale, but as mew know I don't do spoilers here, though I will say this, I think this is purrfect to teach younger readers compassion and kindness towards anipals, and I would recommend it without hesitation, and in my humble opinion it would make a purrfect gift fur any cat lover too.
