A Kitten Called Holly


Jasmine and Tom are excavating an old shed on the farm when they disturb a wild mother cat who abandons her kittens  as a result. When she returns to move only two of the three, the friends are left to raise the orphaned Holly, as they call her, alone. As ever, Jasmine is determined that Holly should become a member of her farmyard family, but her mother has other ideas.

This series is so well-written and so interesting. It is ideal for readers who are building their pace and reading resilience and deserve works that are respectful of them, informative, funny and warm. We love Helen Peters’ Jasmine Green’s Adventures’ series and recommend them highly to readers aged from 5- 10 years.

(Nosy Crow)

Jasmine and Tom’s plans for an animal shelter are interrupted by a wild grey cat with kittens. This is the fourth title in Nosy Crow’s Jasmine’s Adventures’ series. It is well written, interesting, warm and respectful of Junior School readers  who are building a reading habit. We love Jasmine’s enthusiasm and boundless ideas, while the animal husbandry facts are fascinating for any reader!
