Books & Music

Kitty has two books out right now ~ “Henny and Benny Bunyan and the Maple Syrup Adventure” and an all-Michigan song and information (and recipes!) project. Both books come with music CDs.

What’s New!

Kitty is currently writing the 2nd Northwoods Kids book, tentively called “The Mystery of Popcorn Island ”. This one will feature Benny Bunyan, his friend Stardancer, Louie the incorrigable dog, and a few other characters. Here’s a little synopsis ~ there’s a very strange noise coming from Popcorn Island and Benny, along with Louie, rows out in his boat to investigate. At the same time Stardancer is rowing her boat to the island. When they both get to the island they find…what?!

March is Reading Month!

Kitty offers a variety of school programs tailored to all age levels.
