Willow the Wildcat
The kittens felt safe now inside their new den,
but soon they were back to complaining again.
Willow said, “Move, Corrie — I need more space.”
“Ouch!” grumbled Corrie. “Your paws in my face!”
Willow and her brother Corrie are searching for a new den in the Scottish Highlands. Can the kittens learn how to work together to find a safe home?
'A cute story. The rhyming text and expressive pictures gently point out some of the threats to the cats' survival although here there's a happy ending.'
-- Jane Sandell
'The illustrations provided by Kirsteen Harris-Jones reflect the beautiful Scottish countryside with the lush pine forests, cool blue streams, and glowing sunset on a long-forgotten castle.'
-- Youth Services Book Review, 4 stars
'I enjoyed the story and following three wildcats as they try to find a new place to live in the Scottish Highlands. Since this species is endangered, the book effectively shows some of the challenges to its survival... I liked the colorful illustrations and the way the young ones learned to work together, a good lesson for anyone.'
