Staff Reviews

"To cuddle or not to cuddle?  And how do you make your human servants understand your boundaries?  In one word, this book is Relatable!"  -The Great Catsby

— From Staff Picks for Little Kids

This hilariously grumpy cat absolutely does not want to cuddle and he is not going to change his mind -- or will he?

Kevin is a spunky, independent cat who does not want a pat. He does not want a tickle. And he certainly does not want to cuddle. All Kevin wants is to be left ALONE. That is, until he sees Dog getting pet, tickled, and cuddled, and realizes that a little attention might not be so bad. The Cat Wants Cuddles introduces a hilarious cast of characters who kids will love immediately. Full of tongue-in-cheek humor and funny asides, this book is sure to become a kid favorite.
