A Dog Called Kitty

A Dog Called Kitty

The puppy was small and fuzzy, with a friendly, wagging tail -- and Ricky was afraid of him!
No wonder, since he was attacked by a dog when he was just a baby. So when a stray puppy comes sniffling around the farm, Ricky tells it to get lost.
But the puppy keeps trying to play with Ricky. And every time Ricky's Mom feeds the cats, the little dog comes running. The cats aren't sharing their food, however, and the poor pup is slowly starving.
If Ricky doesn't overcome his fear, the little puppy may die -- but if he lets himself get close enough to feed it, he may find the best friend he's ever had!
Winner of the Texas Bluebonnet, the Oklahoma Sequoyah and the Nebraska Golden Sower Awards.

    A Dog Called Kitty is the first "novel" I ever read. I was in the second grade and I remember balling my head off over Kitty's death while sitting in the bathtub. It was definitely an eye-opening expe...

    Oh wow, this was my most favorite book when I was a kid! I must have read this book literally HUNDREDS of times growing up. I remember I had an autographed copy of the hardcover edition. I obtained it...

    This was surprisingly a book I had to request since our local library didn't have it and I find that funny since it seemed to be a big push when I was younger to read it. As a result they ended up fo...

    I was extremely disappointed by this book. I'm an English tutor and my student chose this book for us to read together, but had I known what was in store I would have selected something else. To begin...

    This was--this surprised me. It actually had a lot of emotion behind it, and as far as 'late 20th century boy and his dog' books go, it's a good one. ...
