Belle's Journey

Crow Cottage Publishing


Belle is too old and stiff to pull the ploughs or the wagons anymore. In fact, Molly's horse barely earns her keep by carrying the young girl to piano lessons once a week. When Father wonders if they should get rid of Belle, Molly is delighted at the thought of prancing and galloping on a beautiful new pony.

But one winter day on the way home from piano lessons, Molly and Belle become lost in a sudden blizzard. And Belle, old and stiff as she is, confronts the terrible storm with every ounce of will she possesses. No matter what, Belle will not give up until she brings Molly home.

Set on the prairies during the twenties, Belle's Journey is a moving story of steadfast devotion and a heroic fight for survival. This 20th anniversary eBook edition features beautifully enhanced colour illustrations. Reading ages 4-10.

Hunter

Orca Book Publishers


Hunter knows humans are dangerous to himself and the other cats of his colony. He avoids them, as all wild cats should. So when a neighborhood boy starts showing up in Hunter's junkyard to chase away dogs and bring the colony food, Hunter keeps his distance. But a new condo development puts the whole colony in danger, and Hunter soon realizes the only way to save his family is to put his trust in the boy.

The story of Catboy told through very different eyes.

---

"Hunter is a good read, and it is obvious that Walters has a very intimate knowledge of his subject matter. He captures the tension between the different animals and humans quite well. Walters also touches on the impact of the human environment and human activities on the feral cat colonies...I would highly recommend Walters' Hunter to be included in a public or school library collection."

---

"Structured in a way that allows the reader to learn along with the protagonist, Catboy touches on some important information regarding feral cat colonies...The author also intersperses messages about cultural diversity, gentrification and the question of morality vs. legality—all of which offer the possibility of further critical thinking and discussion...A page-turning and thought-provoking read."

---

"This book should definitely be added to libraries with Catboy, and is recommended for fans of animal stories."

---

"Fast-paced action will appeal to boys and girls."

---

"An interesting experiment in collaborative creation and complementary storytelling."

---

"A simple but lively adventure that would appeal to young readers."

---
