Ever since I was 8,  I dreamed of writing a book. College and work helped develop report and technical writing skills. Twenty years of travel journals and Biblical devotions provided the confidence to become an Independent Author.

I really love your book!

Kelly Desclos-Estes has written a delightful circular tale that shows authentic play between two cats. The illustrations by Morgan Knuckles capture the movement of the cats and adds to the tale. It's a perfect read aloud for young children, particularly those who have cats and will be able to see theirs in the antics of the cats in the story.  ~ Valerie Robnol

"This book is amazing! The quote on the dedication page, 'we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us' is powerful! It's particularly meaningful as I think about students in special education. The author and illustrator are perfect together. The spatial effects in the illustrations are awesome! The content is simple and straightforward. This book will be very appealing to those on the autism spectrum".

This book tells an authentic story about how cats interact. I have a 6-year-old and an  8-month old kitten. What is written is just like how they play and tussle with each other. I love it!"
