This week, my post is slightly different to the norm, as I am featuring a great new book for children, written with the collaboration of several authors, one of which is my long term blogging friend, Tracy Terry of ‘Pen and Paper’.
Also, as Tracy had the honour of writing the very first line of this beautiful book, I have no hesitation in featuring it in this week’s ‘Book Beginnings’, together with a very short extract.
The story behind the book’s conception and publishing is also one close to many peoples’ hearts, regardless of whereabouts in the world you live, as proceeds from the sale of ‘Little Kitty The Cat Burglar’, will be donated to Alzheimer’s Reaserch UK and thus will benefit us all in the long run.
Unfortunately, due to a small glitch, to link through to the information and order page at Amazon, you will need to click on the back cover image of the book below, or you can link up here ..
Ah, how I love Sunday mornings! Sunday is positively my second favourite day of the week. Fridays are my favourite, when I always have fresh fish for dinner.

And what does this Sunday have in store for me? Tired of having my tummy tickled, even in the spot that makes me purr in delight, and uninterested in pouncing on toes wiggling beneath the bedclothes, I leisurely wander outside into Peppercorn Place.
Even for a confirmed Ailurophobiac, this book does look and sound kinda cute. The £5 price tag is going to such a great cause, and now that I am officially a great-auntie, I have someone young enough to appreciate the story 🙂
