153 - What Cats Want for Christmas; Kandy Radzinski

Author and illustrator Kandy Radzinski has created another holiday delight for children and adults alike.  In the whimsical treat, the Christmas cats have each written letters to Santa Claus.  Lucy the Cat wants "something sweet that goes tweet tweet". Feline Jade likes to cook and she asks Santa for a book that will help her cooking: "mice, sparrow spaghetti, pelican pie, woodpecker pizza and more".

Benny wants " a warm sweater knit from a red Irish Setter".

 Gracie asks Santa for a dish of silverfish

Check this book out, I think you and your little ones will love it. Aren't the illustrations awesome?
