Award-winning children’s book series, The Alycat Series, by Alysson Foti Bourque is expanding, thanks to young readers who turn to books as resources for life skills and the acquisition of the entire series by Pelican Publishing, an imprint of Arcadia Publishing.
The Alycat Series teaches children that they can fix any problem using imagination, creativity, and the support of their friends.
“I hope Alycat and her friends will encourage young readers to find their special gifts, shine brightly, and support their peers around them,” said Bourque. “I am thrilled to have Pelican Publishing acquire and re-release the entire Alycat Series. With their impressive roster of authors and unparalleled reputation in the publishing industry, I am honored that Alycat has a new place to call home.”
The Alycat Series features five titles, with the highly-anticipated sixth releasing in March, 2023: Alycat and the Thursday Dessert Day, Alycat and the Monday Blues, Alycat and the Friendship Friday, Alycat and the Tournament Tuesday, Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday, and Alycat and the Sleepover Saturday (2023).
The series, which has won more than 20 awards, has original songs available on iTunes and YouTube and was featured in the Official Grammy’s Swag Bag and Oscar’s Gift Bag. Additionally, The Alycat Series has received glowing reviews from major publications such as Kirkus Reviews and BookLife Reviews. Bourque has graced the cover of Story Monsters Ink magazine, a Times Square billboard, and garnered praise from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York who read one of Bourque’s books on her YouTube channel.
Bourque began her career as a teacher after graduating from University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a degree in Elementary Education and earned a law degree from Southern University Law Center in 2007. After practicing law for nearly seven years, she traded in writing trial briefs for writing children’s books. Through her work with The Alycat Series, Bourque has been able to give back to non-profits and support philanthropic initiatives including Foster the Love, Lafayette Walk to Defeat ALS, The Family Tree, Operation Shower, Wild Cat Foundation, and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
