Itty Bitty Kitty

by Maddy Mara and illustrated by Noémie Geonet Landry

Itty Bitty Kitty LOVES empty boxes, string and sleeping on clean washing. She HATES being called cute. She is almost a tiger, after all!

She may still be a kitten, but Itty Bitty is ready to take on the world. And she knows all the Cat Laws.

So when a family want to make Itty Bitty their pet, she is NOT HAPPY. Cats choose their humans, not the other way around! This is the very first Cat Law.

Join Itty Bitty on three epic adventures. Will she stick to the rules? Or will this kitty make up her own rules for life?

About the Illustrator 

Noémie grew up in a small coastal town of New-Brunswick, Canada, surrounded by the ocean. Growing up, she told everyone she wanted to become either a doctor, or a children’s book illustrator. Midway through med school, she decided she would do both. She now shares her time between the hospital (where she works as a rheumatologist) and her home studio, where she sketches, draws and paints surrounded by her wife, son, two tiny Chihuahuas and two cats. She works both digitally and traditionally, creating engaging illustrations, usually with a funny twist!
