Little Honker Saves the Day

Warren’s meow is a honk.

He doesn’t sound like his Seal Point Siamese family or look like them. His brothers and sisters will not play kitty games with him. And, then, on a backyard adventure things change. He saves his family from an unwanted visitor and his honking is important after all.

Praise for Saves the Day

 

I love the message of this book!  Warren's mother tells him he will be important in his own way, and he is.  It's a great way to talk about differences and talents.  Warren the cat is unqiue and heroic.  Highly recommend this book for ages 6-8.

It pays to be different sometimes is a good message.  My granddaughters -- all cat lovers--loved this oh-so-sweet tale.  I recommend this book.

Warren's latest adventure with the newest residents and neighbors of his backyard will resonate with anyone still searching for his or her "tribe".  Finding the people that you share things with is a challenge, but Warren takes that challenge and makes it look easy.  You don't have to be just like your friends, but if you have one thing in common with each other, you have the seed to make a friendship grow.  Find that one thing!

Praise for Margie Surprises Doc

This is super cute and I like the new addition of Olivia.  The musical bit reminded me of the Little Honker books.  Perhaps a crossover is in the future!  The kits are funny.  Makes me wonder if Doc will make glasses for them as well as Olivia.

Little Honker's Winter Concert

Can a cat play music at a school concert? 

 

Little Honker can and did. First he plays a duet and then the bells with the rest of the band. When the bells get loose, the kitty inside him takes over and the excitement begins as Little Honker chases them around the auditorium. Did Little Honker ruin the concert or make it the most memorable one ever?

Warren is back!  How fun.  I'm a Vet Tech and play the piano, so my son and I especially enjoyed Little Honker's desire for music.  He has the perfect cat-titude.
