Well-known vet Herriot retells his true story of Debbie, a mysterious stray who makes occasional brief visits to the Pickerings, until one Christmas she arrives with a single newborn kitten and then dies, leaving Mrs. Picketing, heretofore a dog-owner, entranced with her first cat. In Herriot's straightforward narration, the events provide their own drama, in this case much enriched by Brown's. “‘The Christmas Kitten’ is a delightful tale sure to warm any heart at this time of year! Parents will enjoy reading it to their children and the message of not just looking to your own interests but caring for the needs of others.” ~ H. Smith “Wow what an awesome book! It really made me tear up! I think every kid should have one!

  Grandma Gets A Christmas Kitten Surprise. Octo Grandma's family surprises her with a black kitten for Christmas. Her wholesome reaction brought tears to my eyes. Please consider making a donation to Sunny Skyz and help our mission to make the world a better place.   So home we go, cat in hand, book on the floor of the van. Before I let Maggie take off to her room with her kitten, I sat her down and insisted we read the book together. I quickly regretted this. It seems that this is no innocent story about a fluffy kitten at Christmas. It’s an Elf on the Shelf disguised as a friendly kitten!!!!! I was.
