Mom's Choice Award Winner Readers' Favorite International Award WinnerAge 6-8 This story revolves around Christmastime and a family who once adopted a lost kitten, naming it Nyda. Nyda has now grown old and has settled into a calm, uneventful life with her new family-until the day before Christmas, when the family's older daughter brings two playful kittens, Mickey and Jack, home for the holidays. The two kittens from the big city are a change for the family, and for Nyda. The old cat likes her settled life and is not happy about the new arrivals. She's also very protective of her belongings. The city kittens annoy her, and the old cat grumbles about the new additions to the family- until she hears a story one night that makes her feel bad. The kittens aren't the soft or spoiled brats she had thought they were . . .

Mrs. D. (Olga D'Agostino), an award-winning author, grew up on a farm in a village nestled in the beautiful Carpathian Mountains in western Ukraine. Surrounded by nature and the real world, without TV and toys, she learned to read at a very early age, and books then became a huge part of her life. As a child, she used to create her own imaginary world populated with characters from books she read. She finished business college in Lviv, Ukraine. To escape the harsh reality of life in the Soviet Union, she immigrated to the United States in 1992 with her two small daughters. For many years she worked in her own business. She is a member of SCBWI, speaks several languages fluently, and loves reading, writing, gardening, and traveling.

Books by Mrs. D: "Carlo the Mouse on Vacation," "The Trees Have Hearts," "Runaway Clothes," "Good Morning, World," "The Little Girl Praying on the Hill," and "Carlo the Mouse, Book 1: Too Many Rules for One Little Mouse." "The Trees Have Hearts" was awarded a 2013 Mom's Choice Award. She is already working on several other books for children, including more adventures starring Carlo the Mouse, and "The Mysterious Life Inside a Closet," "The Royal Palm," "Who Is Most Important in the Fridge" and "That Is How Things Are." Her books are available in print on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and as e-books on most e-devices. For updates on Mrs. D.'s books, please visit her website: mrsdbooks.net

Review:

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' FavoriteThe City Kittens and the Old House Cat is an inspiring story written from a cat's point of view. The story can be understood by all pet lovers. The book has some beautiful and colorful illustrations. That makes the book very attractive and visually appealing, something which all the kids love. Children's books should be colorful and bright. The message of tolerance is very important in the current living situation. The book has a nice moral which can be explained to children and they can be asked to practice it too.
