“Sooty, the Green-Eyed Kitten”

February 12, 2014


Joe L. Wheeler, Ph.D., editor/compiler of “The Good Lord Made Them All” animal story series, concludes that series with Sooty, the Green-Eyed Kitten and Other Great Animal Stories (Pacific Press Publishing Association, February 2014). A new collection of animal stories has appeared every year for ten years: Owney, the Post Office Dog; Smoky, the Ugliest Cat in the World; Wildfire, the Red Stallion; Dick, the Babysitting Bear; Spot, the Dog that Broke the Rules; Amelia, the Flying Squirrel; Togo, the Sled Dog; Tawny, the Magnificent Jaguar; Stinky, the Skunk that Wouldn’t Leave; and now Sooty, the Green-Eyed Kitten. This is Wheeler’s 84th book (69th story anthology).

Each of the books in the series is graced by a memorable – indeed visually stunning – cover painted by the well-known artist Lars Justinen. And each collection features around twenty short stories tied to a theme. The stories are enjoyed by all age groups, however, children adore them.
