It's a funny thing about the question, "What do I want to do when I grow up?" We ask it our entire lives! I certainly have.
Our passions are a curious part of our soul. They tend to stick with us. Many of them start when we're kids, such as my desire to be a writer, and follow us around our entire lives. Sometimes we discover a passion later in life. I've experienced both.
I'm from the United States, and grew up in northern Wisconsin on a family dairy farm. As is typical of a farm, we always had lots of barn cats - about 20 to 30 of them at any given time. I played with the kittens a lot, and as a result I love cats - and animals in general for that matter.
Mom looks around the house and groans, “Rattles, how did you do all this with your injuries?” Woofley barks and whimpers. He tries to explain to the humans, but they don’t understand.
When Mom comes home, she finds the house a wreck! The mystery is, "How and why did Rattles manage to do all that?"
Get "Rattles, What Happened to My House?" to find out what happened! Appropriate for ages 4-9.
Good read-to-me book for younger ages, and read-alone book for older ages.
The inspiration for the series, Rattles, the Barn Cat, originated from our family's trips to my mom's farm.
My mom had a barn full of wild cats, but there was one kitten that was unusually friendly towards people. There are currently three books in the series, with a fourth book to be released November 23rd.
