An Angel Kitty Flies
My library has recently completed a book trailer featuring a wonderful children's picture book called Angel in Beijing, by Belle Yang (Sommerville, MA : Candlewick Press, 2018).
Angel in Beijing, by Belle Yang
(MPL Book Trailer #447)
Through most of the book, the white cat is named "Kitty," but by the end, her name is Angel, because, as it turns out, she can actually fly (with the help of a huge kite). I became quite distressed when the little girl couldn't find Kitty after she disappeared over some trees holding onto the kite's tail (Kitty, not the little girl). But all ends well. This book showcases the beauty of Beijing in delightful drawings, and the story shows how love and kindness are best when shared.
Checkout the book from our Evergreen Indiana catalog to read to your young human(s). If you don't have a library card, you could always buy a copy from your favorite bookseller. We felines (and slobberdogs) will enjoy the readaloud, too. But don't read to kittens--they're too scatterbrained to pay proper attention. If you know Harley Quinn, my "cub" kitty reporter, you'll know what I mean.
