(Age: 8+) Highly recommended. Frost and Snowdrop the Stray Kittens is a magical story about friendship, helping others and cats. Kitty is a young girl with the ability to turn into a cat. She is a cat guardian who helps the cats in her village. At the Cat Council meeting, a beautiful cat named Emerald asks some questions about stray cats which get Kitty thinking. When Kitty sees Emerald carrying cat food in the park, she sets out to investigate. Kitty discovers Emerald has been caring for two stray kittens that have lost their owner. All of the village cats come together to help find the missing owner. Finding a tall lady with pink hair proves to be tricky. Can the cats help the kittens? Winter is nearly here. Will they run out of time?
Frost and Snowdrop the Stray Kittens is an easy to read novel with wonderful role models for girls. Kitty is helpful and goes out of her way to help others. Emerald is brave and looks out for others. The cats are a great team who pull together in a crisis. The story moves quickly, making it engaging for readers and the vocabulary is descriptive. Readers will visualise the cats meeting together, talking together and scaring away a scary fox. This book is also part of a series and readers will enjoy reading about all of the adventures. They can read the books in any order as there is enough back-story to help readers know what is going on. It is highly recommended for readers aged 8+.
