Hissy Fitz-Book Review and Giveaway

Are you looking for a cat-centric book for the little one in your life? You should check out Hissy Fitz by Patrick Jennings. Hissy is a cat who isn't getting enough sleep because of his noisy family. Dad makes banging noises all day and then when the kids get home, if Georgie isn't talking his ear off, Zeb is chasing him around the house. How is a kitty supposed to get any rest? His name comes from all the hissing he does to express his disgust with the humans in his life.

Stilwell doing his best impression of Hissy.

Hissy Fitz is a chapter book suited for kids 7-9 years old. The chapters are short and easy for the young reader to handle. The book teaches a useful lesson about the proper way to handle a cat and how to read his signals. Hissy is a loveable character, he just isn't loved in the way he wants to be loved.

Patrick Jennings is also the author of Guinea Dog and teaches creative writing to middle-schoolers. The story is accompanied by black and white illustrations by Michael Allen Austin.
