One of the first blogs I followed when I began blogging was Cat Versus Human, the exceptionally witty comic about "cats and their people."
It is illustrated and written by Yasmine Surovec, who in my opinion is cat woman royalty. Yasmine, however, remains humble as is evidenced on her "About" page on her blog :
"My name is Yasmine.
I draw stuff for a living.
I like cats. I like a certain boy.
I've been told that I'm socially inept and that I have the personality of a blank piece of paper. Thank god for the internet.
At least my parents think I'm special. It says in the birthday card they sent me several years ago. It had a picture of a Persian cat with a pointy party hat, with the words "You're Special" printed in glitter.
Anyway, thanks for visiting. Someone other than my parents has to."
Simply stated and hilarious, the above is pure Yasmine.
Yasmine truly "gets" cats AND their people, Her comic strikes a chord with cat lovers around the world. It is a gift to be able to reach people through drawings and few words, and Yasmine is one of those who are blessed to have that "gift."
It was an incredible honor for me when I reached out to Yasmine asking if I could review one of her latest books, A Bed for Kitty, to have her respond YES!
In A Bed for Kitty, little Chloe is full of excitement to give "Kitty" her new present!!! Kitty loves to sleep and Chloe feels that a new bed will be a most appreciated gift!!

When presented with the new bed, Kitty ignores it. (Of course! She's a cat!)
Kitty proceeds to sleep EVERYWHERE.... but on the bed!!!
Then, Chloe plops down on Kitty's new bed frustrated. Her eyes catch Kitty sleeping in Chloe's bed.
Chloe has an idea...
She lays down on Kitty's new bed.............
What do you think happens next?
True cat lovers will know what happens next, but you know me, I will NEVER reveal an ending of ANY book. You will have to get the book to find out!
A Bed for Kitty is a hard cover book that is brightly illustrated, (in Yasmine's trademark simple yet vibrant style), that will surely delight the little ones at bed time, story time, ANY time! It is the perfect size for little ones to clasp tightly and laugh at Kitty's antics!
ISBN 978-1-59643-863-7 (hardcover)

I was not compensated for this review/give-away. As stated above, I contacted Yasmine (and I rarely contact ANY authors asking to review their books! ) asking if I could review this book. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.
