Summary
Kat the kindhearted kitten has a great big song to share in this adorable new picture book from author and illustrator Greg Foley.

It was a gray and rainy day. Kat was stuck indoors.
She was sad because she had no one to play with.
"I'll write a song! That will make me feel better," Kat said.

Kat writes a song to make things better on a gray and rainy day. After perfecting her magic song, she sings it out loud, and to her surprise, the rainy clouds go away! Kat is so pleased that she goes around her neighborhood singing her magic song. Will her song be able to help her friends too?

A great read-aloud for parents and little ones to share, this sweet story proves that music has the power to bring friends together and let the sun shine through.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "This gentle tale revealing the soothing power of music, optimism, and friendship stars a lonely gray kitten, who writes a song to counter the rainy-day blues. After she finishes "Amazing Song to Make Things Better," Kat sings it (wryly, the lyrics are comprised of a single word: meow) and instantly feels better-evidenced by the appearance of the sun and her brightening facial expression in a portrait hanging on the wall. Strolling outdoors with her guitar, Kat cheers cranky Dog and scatterbrained Turtle with her song, but her hopes that it is magical are dashed when the tune fails to fix a broken wheel on Bunny's skateboard. With simple lines, chunky images, and a soft pastel palette, Foley (Thank You Bear) showcases Kat's seesawing emotions, which, thanks to her intuitive friend Bird, cap off on a high note. This ingenuous heroine (who, like her pals, has a vintage plush look) will win readers over with her goodwill and humorously streamlined song. Musical notes and lyrics set to Kat's song appear on the endpapers-a bonus for young singers. Ages 3-7. Agent: Caryn Wiseman, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
