Moshe Cotel is a composer who lives in a noisy building on a noisy street in a noisy city. One day as he strolls down the street he finds a little kitten. (Which he names "Ketzel" which is "Kitten in Yiddish.") He takes her home, telling her they will “make beautiful music together.” Truer words were never spoken. One day, Ketzel strolls down Moshe’s piano keyboard, Moshe writes down what he hears, enters the composition into a contest, and the rest is history! Based on a true story, Ketzel will delight both cat lovers and music lovers alike!

Children's Book:KETZEL the CAT who COMPOSED by Lesle'a Newman, "Based on the true story of a very talented cat"
"We are surrounded by miracles if you can only perceive them"
"Moshe was a composer.
Every morning he composed himself
by sitting very still.
He listened outside himself
and listened inside himself,
just as his teacher had taught him
when he was a little boy.
When he was done listening,
Moshe turned all the wonderful sounds he heard
into beautiful music"
