A moving story of friendship, family, and the importance of empathy from award-winning author Nicole Melleby, expertly rendered with vibrant, expressive illustrations from Alexandra Colombo.
Sunny does not like cats—especially Oswaldo. He’s cranky and mean.
Sunny’s dad loves Oswaldo. She does not understand why.
When Oswaldo doesn’t come home one day, Sunny is happy. But her dad is sad.
Sunny wants her dad to be happy, so she helps him look for Oswaldo.
But can Sunny and Oswaldo ever get along?
“This well-paced story tells a realistic story of an adopted pet with grace and light humor… the final illustration of Sunny and Oswaldo hugging makes clear that even the most stubborn of us—human and pet—can change our opinions when we consider others. Purrfectly charming!”Kirkus Reviews
“Melleby and Bulgarian illustrator Colombo create a story about animal-human attachment, found family, and much more: With economic text and scribbly cartooning, they also offer an astute look at that moment when a child realizes there is more in a parent’s heart than initially imagined.”Publishers Weekly
