Ketzel's ComPAWsition

We have a new book trailer featuring a delightful children's picture book, which is now available to checkout from our Evergreen Indiana catalog.  Be sure to turn-up the volume when you watch our book trailer (below), so you may hear one of my Library's composer's original compositions as the soundtrack.

Ketzel, the Cat Who Composed, by Lesléa Newman
(Illustrated by Amy June Bates)
We felines are rather talented.  Based on a true story, Ketzel became a world-famous kitty composer, as did Ketzel's human, Rabbi (Morris) Moshe Cotel (1943-2008).  Ketzel's comPAWsition appears below.

Newman and Bates have created a charming children's picture book commemorating both Moshe and Ketzel.  It is an affectionate portrait of two musically-gifted souls that is uplifting and life-affirming.  Plus it's really sweet.

In one of my previous lives, I enjoyed the piano, so I know how wonderful music can be to us kitties.  People seem to like it, too.

I hope you enjoy reading this book to your little peeps.
