Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This title is intended for ages 4-8. It is a chilly Thanksgiving, and cat cousins Sunny and Wondrous meet at their family's country home. Hoping their felines will become best friends, cousins Claire and Ella are dismayed when fur flies instead. Sunny and Wondrous just are not interested in growing a friendship. When the chase reaches its peak, the cat cousins realise they have not been honest, or kind; and they could be playing instead of fighting! Hissing and clawing give way (to the joyous astonishment of the girls!) to licking whipped cream from a shared bowl. Authors and sisters Mary Hochenauer and Lois (Suji) Hochenauer-Fox weave a story that can teach young readers to communicate from their hearts by choosing love over fear.Canadian illustrator Diane Lucas enhances the timely message of this storybook with spunky, earnest portrayals of characters who feel at times fearful, lonely, selfish, mischievous, generous, loving, happy, and content. The holiday setting and family warmth draw young readers who, while thrilled by the scrabbling uproar.
