Rattles,The Barn Cat Misfit Book 1 of 4

Written and Illustrated by Arlene White

This is a simply illustrated beginning reader for elementary school readers who enjoy stories about cats. The protagonist, Rattles, is a cat who lives in a barn on a farm. Her siblings enjoy rough and tough play amongst themselves. Rattles is different. She is the only wild cat who enjoys being with humans.

When Linda and Michelle visit their grandparents for three days, they play with Rattles and are sad to leave her behind. Rattles becomes ill and Grandma takes her to the vet. When the grandchildren return for Thanksgiving, they hatch a plan that will change the life of Rattles forever.

The book teaches young readers that it is okay to be different, and one should not be afraid to try new things. Recommended especially for ages six through nine.
