Synopsis

Dr Kittycat is Ready to Rescue: Willow the Duckling by Jane Clarke

Dr KittyCat is always ready with her furry first aid! In Willow the Duckling the little animals are rehearsing for the the Thistletown Talent Show when Willow the Duckling is suddenly taken ill. She's desperate to perform on stage like the others, but will Dr KittyCat and Peanut be able to make her better before the curtain rises? 'We'll be there in a whisker!' This series follows the first-aid adventures of Dr KittyCat and Peanut the mouse, who's always at her side. Each book is about a small furry patient who badly needs Dr KittyCat's help. With fun and familiar contexts that children can relate to, lovable characters, and strong storylines around each medical emergency, the Dr KittyCat series has real appeal for children. There is just the right mix of compelling first-aid detail combined with a delightfully surreal furry world. The books share a unique visual identity - they are highly-illustrated in two colour, combining photography and hand-drawn elements.

About the Author

Jane Clarke on Jane Clarke:

I live in Kent with my two Labradors, Bramble and Amber. The dogs love to swim in the sea, so I burn a lot of perfumed candles to stop our house from smelling of damp dog.

Thanks to my Mum and Dad, I had a very happy childhood in the English Midlands. Dad attached a trapeze to the branch of a tree in our garden, and my friends and I spent a lot of time hanging upside down pretending to be acrobats. There were always pets – mice, hamster, and guinea pigs, cats and dogs. For a long time, I thought my dog was my brother. My bedroom was stuffed full of fossils and shells.

My ideas come from my family and pets, my friends and their families, and from school. I often lose all track of time when I’m writing. Amber and Bramble have learned to bring me their leads, to remind me to take them out for a walk.

Most of my stories and poems are funny, because I love to laugh, but sometimes I write about sad things. The saddest thing in my life is my husband’s death. Martin was a lovely man, a great husband and Dad. Andy and Rob are now at university and Martin lives on in them, in our hearts, and in our happy memories.
