Review: Cat Chat with Caren & Cody

“I have reviewed both of KeeKee’s Big Adventures books for children. This one is KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Rome, Italy. Actually my cat reviewed it and here is an excerpt:”Once again, Mom and I purred while reading about KeeKee’s adventures, (this time in Rome, Italy), because the illustrations done by Casey Uhelski are vibrant, colorful and are just BURSTING with purrsonality! If it is possible, I think the illustrations in KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Rome, Italy are even MORE VIBRANT and possess even MORE amazing details than her first book! (Wait til you see the illustration of the Sistine Chapel and her take on Michelangelo’s masterpiece! Mamma mia it’s SPLENDIDO!!!!” Here is the rest of the review!”

Review: The Conscious Cat

Ingrid reviewed KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Paris on her award-winning The Conscious Cat website!

Here’s what she had to say…

“I don’t often review children’s books, but KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Paris, France, by Shannon Jones, is such an adorable book, I just have to share it with you.

Illustrated by Casey Uhelski, this whimsical little book is for children 4 to 7 years old. The book combines a playful story with culture, language, geography, food, and tradition. I was thoroughly charmed by the book. The drawings are absolutely delightful, and I loved finding out that they were inspired by a real calico named KeeKee who inspired the drawings.”

Here’s what she had to say about KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Paris

“This is a lovely picture book for kids under the age of 7 or 8 to enjoy with their parents at storytime or for early readers to tackle themselves. It introduces readers to the highlights of Paris including famous landmarks, culture, language, and food as KeeKee explores the city.

This delightful book would be excellent for introducing young children to Paris prior to a trip or just for teaching them about other countries in a fun way and piquing their curiousity about the world.”

 Review: Cat Chat with Caren & Cody LOVE KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Paris

From their Facebook page…”Hi all! It’s Cody! Mom and I purred while reading about KeeKee’s adventures, because the illustrations done by Casey Uhelski are vibrant, colorful and are just BURSTING with purrsonality! We followed KeeKee and her new furiend Elliot the seagull who acted as KeeKee’s tour guide, as she visited the Eiffel Tower, the Notre Dame Cathedral and we couldn’t wait to see the “Meowna Lisa painting” with KeeKee! There are many other Parisian places that KeeKee visited, but we don’t want to tell you them all! We want you to read the book so you learn about them yourself! There is even a “charmingly illustrated map of Paris!””
