This is book number 1 in the My Pet Human series.


From queen cat lady Yasmine Surovec comes a cuddly new chapter book series about a cat in need of a pet human.
Oliver is an independent kitty. He has his run of the neighborhood and looks at his animal friends with their fussing humans with pity. But when a freckle-faced girl moves into town, Oliver sees the opportunity to train a human to provide him with a few creature comforts. And if he can help her adjust to her life and make a new friend, that's just all in a day's work. The real surprise comes, however, when Oliver needs Freckles just as much as she needs him. Not a comic book and not a traditional illustrated chapter book, My Pet Human is truly a hybrid of text and art that could only come from the whimsical and brilliant mind of Yasmine Surovec.

Praise For…

“Cartoonist, picture-book author, and cat-channeler Surovec leaps into early chapter books with a cat's-eye view of life that will make a splendid introduction to longer fiction for young feline fanciers. This series opener is a must for young humans owned by furry masters.” —Kirkus

“Cat-loving kids, particularly emerging readers, will get a kick out of the feline narrator, as well as the heartening story of friendship.” —Booklist

“A sweet story for animal lovers and emergent readers, too.” —School Library Journal

“Surovec's simplified cartoons evoke the joys of pet ownership (even when the human is the pet).” —Publisher's Weekly
