The problem is universal and the solution is a good lesson

Discover the value in learning to get along even when it seems impossible through Oscar and Abigail’s adventure in Richard Cooper’s new children’s book “A Tail of Two Kitties” (published by Archway Publishing). The two cats fuss and fight about everything, never wanting to do the same thing.

Meet Oscar and Abigail, two headstrong kitties attached at the tail. They live in the land of Stretch, and they almost never agree on what to do and where to go. When Abigail wants to climb a tree, Oscar prefers to chase a bee. And when Oscar wants to dig a hole, Abigail wants to drink milk from her bowl. When Oscar is quiet, Abigail is screechy. They argue and fight, locking whiskers, and then the fur flies. They never seem to agree, but somehow they must figure out a way to get along anyway. Follow their journey in the story to see if it all works out.

“The problem is universal and the solution is a good lesson,” Cooper says, adding that he thinks “Today’s society and future societies can all benefit from learning to work together.”
