A Cat Named Mouse - The Miracle Of Answered Prayer {book giveaway}

Today's giveaway is courtesy of author Anna Alden Tirrill who is giving away a signed copy of her book A Cat Named Mouse: The Miracle Of Answered Prayer.

About A Cat Named Mouse: The Miracle Of Answered Prayer

The story of A Cat Named Mouse is an adorable and heart-warming story that will touch kids especially. Mouse's owner is a precocious 12-year old girl named Annie whose family loves Mouse as much as she does. But as Mouse is napping on a first floor windowsill one day, something happens - she tumbles out and she is lost to her family. This would be a nightmare for any pet owner, and no less for Annie and her parents.

The writing is appropriate for a middle school age-group and the word pictures painted are those that animal lovers would appreciate, including the formulating of an organized plan (including family prayer) to find their lost pet that they consistently follow daily until Mouse shows up again in what is clearly a miraculous way. Annie prays for God to protect Mouse and bring her back.

This book sounds perfect for my 13 year old daughter. We're a "cat" family and she loves to read! Other reason? This happened to my cat when I was a young girl! He was a BIG cat trying to squeeze onto the window sill. He finally got settled.....and OOOOOPS, down went Koonie. lol good thing it was on the first floor. He landed in a shrub. ha

Because cats really rule the world. I was told that in ALL of the other 51 universes, the CATS are kings !!!! And queens, of course. That's why the look snobbish for people here. They are not our pets. We are not their "owners". the own us.

In their Katziwebs (similar to out Internet, but only much higher and much netter) in these 51 Universes, they are famous for their memes on us poor hum as, always having fun of our awkwardness lol

But not only that. They sometimes spend time thinking if it is valuable to turn EArth into a place to be conquered. So far they came to conclusion that it is not worthy. So far, they decided that we are so fun for them to look at us, pathetic beings, that we are kind of a circus to us, so, they are not a three from the 51 universes... until they get bored of us, of course. Then world domination. And it is only here they hate rats. In these 51 universes, they interact from neutral, to friendship, rage, hate, just like us, humans. No war, though, ever happened on the Katzi galaxy.

Me and my princess cat (she has a tiara , lol )thank so much for the giveaway <3
