Cover of author Angela DeFina's new children's book, "The Howling Himalayan and Pepe at Worthwyle"

Author Angele DeFina, a former teacher, knows the importance of teaching children to love and be kind to one another. In her new children’s book, “The Howling Himalayan and Pepe at Worthwyle,” DeFina tells the story of a family and their clever Himalayan cat and how love and consideration allowed them to overcome a bad situation.

The story is told in easy to follow poetry verses for parents and children of all ages to enjoy. The book follows the mother named Pepe and the chain of events that take place at their home called Worthwyle when their Himalayan gets into mischief and escapes the house. Thanks to the kindness and consideration of their neighbor, they are able to find the Himalayan and return the cat home safely.

“I believe in love and consideration and practice it daily,” said DeFina. “I wanted to show children that this love and consideration can help many bad situations such as a lost cat.”

DeFina was inspired to write this book after 10 years of teaching and was also influenced by the love for her own family and their late great Himalayan cat, Sierra, who was very friendly with dog-like tendencies and lived to be 20-years-old.
