Author to talk about her engaging picture book in a radio interview with Stu Taylor.

Pearl is a modern cat that has faced many challenges in her life. With each complex situation, she manages to reach a reasonable conclusion. Young readers can learn a lot from the nuggets of Pearl’s Wisdom as they immerse in this engaging picture book by Mary B. Fisher, PhD.

Although Pearl is named for her beautiful, long fluffy hair that is pearl-colored, she is affectionately called “Stinky” in her household. In fact, her family has created a song in her honor titled, “Our Cat Stinky”. Pearl’s Wisdom follows her many escapades and how she creatively handles new situations. This vain but lovable cat dishes out advice on personal grooming. She laments that daily brushing and licking are not enough, but an occasional trim with a bit of styling gel or hairspray could produce a more suave coiffure. Eating healthy and recycling also help her maintain a well-proportioned physique.

With wonderful illustrations by Micaela Cimino, Pearl’s Wisdom takes a lighthearted look at life lessons as seen through the eyes of a sophisticated cat. People learn from experience, and it is the same for a smart cat like Pearl. She shares the dangers of swimming without an adult and the value of a nap to avoid stress and conflict. She reveals the power of positive thinking to help her avoid trouble. More of these lessons await young readers as they discover Pearl’s Wisdom.
