Purr-fectly Lucky by Kimberly Palmucci celebrates how special and unique being different is.
Lucky is similar to the other cats at the shelter in the way he likes to frolic and play. He is also different because he has three legs. Every day families visit the shelter looking for a cat to call their own. Who will come to bring Lucky home?
In this charming book of rhyme, Palmucci reminds young readers that being different is a good thing. Inspired by the story of her own unique shelter cat, Lucky’s sweet story is one that kids will enjoy time and again. It also is a great way to teach youngsters about accepting the differences of others they may know.
Brandi McCann provides the colorful and adorable artwork for this first book in the series. Large eyes, rounded faces, and bright colors combine to endear the reader to Lucky and his friends at the shelter. She captures emotions well. I look forward to seeing more of her artwork as the series continues.
A book that educates while it entertains, everyone is sure to enjoy this delightful story.

I received a copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
Are you a cat lover? Do your children love cats? If so, you’ll want to pick up Shoo Cat, the latest by Shari Lyle-Soffe.
Ethan wants a dog. He has a cat, but they aren’t loyal like dogs. Cats aren’t faithful like dogs and they certainly don’t like water. When Ethan gets a chance to trade his cat for a dog, it’s an adventure he doesn’t expect.
I have a feeling that Shoo Cat by Shari Lyle-Soffe is going to end up being a favorite of mine. Our family has come to know the joy of loving cats, and I can’t believe that there is a dog more loyal than our Tiger, who follows us on our walks through the neighborhood and kills any furry rodent who makes the mistake of putting his paws on our lawn.
The poor cat in Shoo Cat spends his time showing Ethan what a great friend he can be, but the stubborn boy can only think about how great it would be to own a dog. It’s cute to see the interaction between the two—or lack there of, because Ethan is pretty much oblivious to everything the cat is doing until after he gets the coveted dog and sees things differently.
Jack Foster has done a spectacular job illustrating Shoo Cat. Foster has a style that is definitely his own. I could tell right away that he did the artwork on this book, without having to look for his name.
There’s so much to love about Shoo Cat that your children will wear these pages out from reading the book so often. You’ll probably enjoy reading it too. It’s truly a book for cat lovers everywhere.
