Sometimes Naughty: Always Loved: Mary and Her Big Cat Brain – by Arleen Alleman

A lovely tabby cat named Mary uses her intelligence and instinct—her big cat brain—to sort out what her human parents want her to do, and how to avoid being “naughty.” The story sets up an emotional transition moving from Mary’s anxiety about her own naughty behavior, to the realization that she is greatly loved despite her occasional transgressions.

This book was inspired by the author’s cat, Xena, who greatly enriched the lives of her “parents” for fourteen of her eighteen years. She was much loved even though she too was occasionally naughty. From infancy, children will love hearing about Mary and her message of unconditional love, and later, will want to read the story themselves for enjoyment and as a learning tool. There is no better predictor of success in life than literacy and the desire to learn through reading.

From The Author:  Dear readers, this is my first children’s book after completing the Darcy Farthing series. It was such a pleasure to write Sometimes Naughty-Always Loved that I’m sure it won’t be the last. I hope you find enjoyment and value in this sweet story to be read to children from infancy and then by children as they learn to read.

I am very grateful to Cedric Taylor, a very talented artist, for his wonderfully expressive illustrations. I look forward to hearing how the book is received by your little ones. I hope you’ll consider writing a quick review. Customer reviews are vital for the success of all authors. Happy reading!
