This is the happy ending image from my JASMINE AND BOO (THE FIX-IT TEAM) book. The fix-it team is comprised of Jasmine and her imaginary cat friend Boo. In this book the challenge was to make Sophie's big bad bully brother be nicer to his sister. Once this had been achieved, they had a celebratory water balloon fight which ended in a big hug.

What's It Like To Be A Cat? by Karla Kuskin

Karla Kuskin was an award-winning poet and author of many children’s books. All of them are fun and most original. She received multiple awards.

My favorite is: So what’s it like to be a cat? For starters it is endlessly original and wonderfully illustrated with Betsy Lewin’s drawings—a perfect combination.

It is such a fun idea to have a boy interview, in perfect rhyme, a cat on what it is like to be a cat. The book is a delight to any cat lover but also for any child learning to understand it is okay to be different.

Some of her other books are:
