Stowaway in a Sleigh

C. Roger Mader
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016

From the dust jacket, “The cat’s out of the bag and adventure awaits! When Slipper finds Mr. Furry Boots in her house, she does what any cat would do and investigates. But curiosity gets the best of her when she finds herself on a trip she hadn’t planned on taking…

“Join Slippers as she discovers that the best journey is the one home – especially for the holidays.”

This book is beautifully illustrated and sparingly narrated. The pictures really don’t need words – the author could have gone completely wordless and the story wouldn’t have been any less enjoyable. A lovely, calming story to read to kittens, especially on Christmas Eve, in anticipation of Mr. Furry Boots’ arrival with toys, even for cats!

If you love beautiful books, put this one on your Christmas wish list – we did!

Rating 5 out of 5 paws for a heartwarming story with illustrations both gorgeous and dreamy.
