Kitty and the Kidnap Trap Press Reviews

Praise for the Kitty Series;

‘Purrfect books for the intended age – I am sure they will be a big success’ – Tony, The Alligator’s Mouth

‘Kitty and her friends are hugely appealing characters and this little story is full of useful, important lessons about friendship, bravery, and finding courage within yourself. It is a perfect book for little girls and boys confidently reading on their own.’ – Books for Keeps

‘The first in a lovely new series for fans of Isadora Moon, Kitty is a relatable little girl whose night-time adventures feature a cast of lovely cat characters – adventurous Figaro, sophisticated Katsumi and curious Pixie. A gentle theme of friendship, bravery and being yourself also runs throughout.’ – Book Trust, Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue

‘Kitty’s magical story is enhanced and energised by the detailed illustrations that breathe life into the cheeky cat characters and the fantastic garden they find. A great first outing into the world of ‘chapter’ books, Kitty’s exploits are ideal for reading aloud or to bridge the gap between picture books and lengthier fiction.’ – Book Trust, Kitty and the Sky Garden Adventure

‘An utter delight and a perfect book for emerging readers’ – V’s View from the Bookshelves

‘This feline frolic will appeal to readers starting their first chapter books.’  – iNews

‘Harrison writes an amusing story of bravery and self-confidence, encouraging newly independent readers with Mom’s words: “Don’t let fear hold you back. You’re braver than you think.” Løvlie sets an incredible scene with her dramatic black-and-white illustrations on almost every page. Multiple pages are entirely black with white text and drawings, immersing the readers in this nighttime story.’  – Kirkus Reviews

About Paula Harrison

Paula Harrison began inventing stories and writing them down as a child. One of her best was about a magical land inhabited by talking bookworms. After taking an English degree, she became a primary school teacher and is now married with two children. She loves inspiring children's imaginations and believes that day-dreaming can be a really good use of your time (although she hasn't actually said that during a lesson). Over the years, she's shared many different authors' books with children, and now she can't wait to share her own. Paula says: “The beginnings of the idea for ...
