Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue
Girl by day. Cat by night. Ready for an adventure. Meet Kitty, a charming chapter book character whose catlike superpowers send her on daring nighttime adventures. With dramatic two-color art on every page and an emphasis on friendship, family, bravery, and building self-confidence, Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue is a perfect choice for independent readers and fans of Rebecca Elliott’s Owl Diaries.
Kitty is special. Her mother is a superhero with catlike powers that Kitty and her little brother Max will someday inherit. But being a superhero involves going on daring adventures out in the dark and frightening night, and Kitty doesn’t know if she’ll be brave enough.
One night, Kitty finds a sleek black cat with white paws waiting at her window. When he introduces himself, Kitty is shocked to realize she can understand him—her powers have arrived! The cat, Figaro, has a problem. There’s a terrible meowing sound coming from the clock tower, and none of the other cats knows what to do. The night outside looks cold and uninviting, and Kitty is afraid of the dark. But she musters up her courage and sets out to find the source of the mysterious sound. Along the way, she makes new friends, finds her confidence, and learns what it means to be brave.
Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue is the first book in a chapter book series about Kitty and her superhero adventures. With an aspirational main character, a kindle of cats, striking two-color art on every page, and fun activities included at the end of the story, these chapter books are just right for newly independent readers.
