A Quieter Story

When a little girl starts to write a story about her kitten playing with yarn, he doesn't like it one bit. He wants a story for his alter-ego TIGER — one that has pep and pizzazz — so the girl creates an adventure that the kitten jumps into. Darkness surrounds him (No light, no problem! says the kitten), venomous vipers drop from the trees (Snakes? I've got this), hungry hyenas circle the tiger — and suddenly the kitten begins to wonder if there can be such a thing as too much adventure.

As the story gets scarier and scarier, he realizes that what one wants and what one needs are sometimes two different things. This time, he needs a quieter story. This colorful and inventive picture book about a creative girl and her kitten reminds kids to be careful what they wish for — but also celebrates the joy of collaborative storytelling.

"Round eyes and heads, simply drawn shapes, and black outlines give the pictures a cheerful, cartoony feel. Shifts in perspective allow young listeners to become immersed in the story within a story, while subtle details ground the adventure in the cozy real-life setting.... Lively and amusing, this story about making stories will likely find eager listeners — and may just inspire some writing projects, too." — Kirkus Reviews
