The Kiwi Series

Have you ever wished your cat could talk or wondered 
where he/she goes when you are not around?

Kiwi seems like a typical moggie, content to nap in the sun and chase shadows, but she has a secret. She is a magical cat from a place called Cat City. With her two humans, James and Amy, Kiwi finds mysteries and adventures, dealing with catnappings, jewel thieves, giant rats, time travel, haunted houses, Father Christmas, pyramids and more. The fun stories contain positive messages about loyalty, friendship, honesty, bullying and the power of standing together. 
The books contain illustrations by Nikki McBroom. Furry fun for ages 9-99.

"Very well written fantasy about an alternate reality for cats. It creates a richly detailed place called Cat City where a suspenseful mystery story unfolds. Two young children are transported to this realm by their magical cat where they play an important role in solving a case of catnapping. The details of this world are amazing, but equally impressive are the details of the characters which are brought to life vividly by the author. I found myself laughing aloud at the many witty sections and comical situations. If Pixar is looking for their next animated feature hit, they should contact this author about an adaptation of this book." (Ed Drury)

Good luck in the giveaway. Click the linky to check out the other fantastic blogs taking part. Happy reading and writing to ya! :)

  4. I should have indicated my favorite fairy tale - The Little Mermaid - When the kids were all young, we made a video of them acting it out. The other was - Three Billy Goats Gruff

  5. I think my favorite fairy tale was Hansel and Gretel, I think because of the witch's house. Close second would be Little Red Riding Hood. For whatever reasons, the ones I remember are mostly Grimm's Brothers stories.

  6. I love Ella Enchanted it was a sweet story and I love the bit about the prince but the fact that they found each other, like the movie with Drew Barrimore where she saves herself and then marries the prince.

  12. I love fairy tales. I actually wrote a paper for my Literary Non-Fiction class about the resurgence of fairy tales in popular culture. This was last year when the two movies based on "Snow White" came out along with the tv show "Once Upon a Time…" and then "Cinder" came out. It was quite an explosion of fairy tales in mediums. I concluded that because of the rough economic times, people were grasping for something to escape to. In fairy tales, the impossible happens. The disenfranchised become the heroes and heroines. They rise to power and usually become a King or Queen. We are still clinging to the American dream and through the use of fairy tales we get to live that dream. As far as my favorite fairy tale goes, I love "Beauty and the Beast." I love it so much that I have thought seriously about naming my first daughter Belle. In books, I love retellings of fairy tales like "Cinder" and "Ella Enchanted." In TV, the show "Beauty and the Beast" on the CW is one of my favorites and in movies, I loved "Mirror, Mirror," "Beastly" and "The Wizard of Oz." Also, a big fan of the musical "Wicked."
    Thanks for the giveaway!
