Author Kimberly Palmucci is back with the next book in her shelter animals series, Purr-fectly Home. Teaming up again with artist Brandi McCann, this book is about Lucky and Princess. Lucky had found his new home, and he enjoyed every room and scratching post in the place. But, that basement was too scary for him. One day, he notices a new scent in the house. Come to find out, Princess has moved in. She had struggled to find her forever home. Together, they overcome their fears and form a close bond.
If you enjoyed the first two books in the series, you’re going to love this one. Purr-fectly Home is such a sweet story, and it is inspired by real life animals, which makes it even more meaningful. The pairing of Palmucci and McCann is sheer perfection. McCann’s illustrations capture every adorable moment. Her colorful illustrations will capture the eyes of all readers. Though a total stand alone story, readers will love to follow these shelter animals along from book to book.
Any pet lover will want to read Purr-fectly Home. It is also a wonderful way to help kids celebrate differences and learn how to thrive in new situations. I’m eager to see what Palmucci has planned for the future.

I received a free copy from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
In this touching second book of Kimberly Palmucci’s series featuring shelter animals, readers learn the story of Wise Cat, who they met in Purr-fectly Lucky.
Purr-fectly Wise goes back to the time when Wise Kitten was adopted by a man who found him on the street. They spent many happy years together, until Wise Man could no longer care for him. Wise Kitten, having matured into Wise Cat, is brought to the shelter. He helps his furry friends there, but there is more in store for Wise Cat.
Turning again to real-life inspiration, Palmucci uses the story of two energetic puppies who grew into wise senior pets under her watchful eye, into a sweet rhyming story of a senior cat whose future still holds so much. Readers who enjoyed Wise Cat in Purr-fectly Lucky will be happy to learn more about him, but even if you don’t read the first book, Purr-fectly Wise will capture the hearts of everyone.
Artist Brandi McCann is back to provide the illustrations for the second book in this series. Her cheery sun with its smiling face, the sweet snuggles between Wise Man and Wise Kitten, and the cute beard and eyeglasses on Wise Cat’s face are just some of my favorite parts of this artwork. Author and illustrator work well together to bring these stories to life. I hope they will continue.
There is so much to love in Purr-fectly Wise. It will have a special place on the bookshelf and be an often requested read.
