Release Date: September 6, 2016
Papillon is one very fluffy kitty. So fluffy that he is literally lighter than air. His owner tries to weigh him down, the best efforts consisting of ridiculous costumes that Papillon doesn't like at all. Yet, he would do anything for one of those ridiculous costumes when he finds himself out in the world and far from home. How will he make his way home when all he can do is float?
Perhaps it is because I am a cat person, but this book is absolutely adorable and I desperately wanted to give Papillon a good pet. Also, as someone who, once a year "tortures" their cat by putting her in costumes, I thought it perfectly captured the love/hate relationship that cats often have with their owners. The whimsical illustrations that accompanied the text reminded me of one of those Pixar shorts and I could see this story animated. And someone really should make an extremely fluffy and soft stuffed animal to go with this. Kids will fall in love with the story, the illustrations, and Papillon.
