Itty Bitty Kitty #4 - Book Release on March 26

Itty Bitty Kitty is not cute... she is practically a tiger!

The fourth book in this warm, funny and accessible series for emerging readers is out on 26 March!

Itty Bitty Kitty #4
by Maddy Mara, illustrated by Noémie Gionet Landry 

Itty Bitty Kitty LOVES cheek rubs, hiding under the sofa and looking after her humans. She HATES being called cute. She is almost a tiger, after all!

She may still be a kitten, but Itty Bitty is ready to take on the world. And she knows all the Cat Laws. She knows much more than her family, who don't even realise that babysitters are evil or that cats should go to school with their humans. And don't get her started on the vet!

Join Itty Bitty on three epic adventures. Will she stick to the rules? Or will this kitty make up her own rules for life?

About the writers

Maddy Mara is the pen name of Melbourne-based creative duo Hilary Rogers and Meredith Badger. Hilary and Meredith have been collaborating on children's for nearly two decades. Hilary is an author and former publishing director; Meredith is the author of countless books for kids and young adults, and teaches English as a foreign language. Maddy Mara is the melding of their respective daughters' names.

Noémie grew up in a small coastal town of New-Brunswick, Canada, surrounded by the ocean. Growing up, she told everyone she wanted to become either a doctor, or a children's book illustrator. Midway through med school, she decided she would do both. She now shares her time between the hospital (where she works as a rheumatologist) and her home studio, where she sketches, draws and paints surrounded by her wife, son, two tiny Chihuahuas and two cats. She works both digitally and traditionally, creating engaging illustrations, usually with a funny twist!
