Sammy the Shy Kitten by Holly Webb and Sophy Williams (Children's, 5 years +, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

  January 2016, Stripes Publishing, 128 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Summary from Little Tiger Press
Emma loves going to Summerhill Stables for her riding lessons. One day she arrives to find that everyone is really worried. Tiggy, the stable cat, has disappeared. Emma hurts her ankle during her lesson and goes to sit down in the barn until she feels better. There she hears a strange squeaking noise and discovers that Tiggy has had three kittens! But the riding school can’t look after so many cats – what will happen to them all? 

Nayu's thoughts
As a cat lover and a Holly fangirl this book was a perfect match for me. I found it interesting how pony lover Emma does her best to help care for the kittens and give them a home despite some obstacles. Sammy is adorable! Sophy's illustrations are super cute, and I happily sat staring at the pictures which made me feel I could reach out and pick the cats up. The story is realistic with a very happy ending which seems like Holly's signature ending, if that makes sense. There are heaps of other books in this series so go check them out!
