Pets in illustrated books

Illustrated books are aimed at children, but one has to admire the skill and creativity of certain talented illustrators: personally I love children’s books and especially the ones that tell the story of a beloved pet. Why are they so charming? Well, there is nothing as poetic and beautiful as the friendship with a beloved pet: pet owners will understand what I mean. What makes YOUR pet special is the connection you have with them: it’s unique, and it’s a friendship that influences both the pet and the human. A friendship with an animal can literally change a human being.

I collect children’s illustrated books with cat/pet stories and I would like to introduce you to my latest acquisitions! How sweet are these books????? You decide 🙂
