Odie the Stray Kitten Earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Odie the Stray Kitten is the endearing tale of a little orange kitten which loses its family out in the forest.  Odie is cold and scared until he happens upon a barn.  Sneaking inside to get out of the cold, he soon encounters a girl who takes him in and gives him a home. 

Author Kristen Mott, has crafted a tale that speaks volumes to children about loss and the fears that arise when one feels all alone.  Both author and illustrator have skillfully depicted this tale which addresses Odie's plight with a sense of calming serenity. 

Wonderful illustrations by Lowell Hildebrandt, are perfectly paired with this book which is a true gem of a read.  We highly recommend Odie the Stray Kitten for classrooms, school and home libraries, and in counseling settings for children dealing with loss.

This book has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

  1. Odie looks like an adorable kitty. The message this book seems to deliver is an important one. Our pets cannot live on their own (maybe that was book two), and feeling alone, pet or child, is horrible. Nice review.
