5.0 out of 5 stars Charming book. Good for all ages., October 26, 2014
This review is from: Finding Mya: He can't live Happily Ever After without her (Paperback)
Kimberly Koz was nice enough to send me a copy of her manuscript to her newest book, Finding Mya - He can't live Happily Ever After without her. Part of what makes this book so special is the artwork - all the drawings are done by 7 year-old Mya Campbell and the photos are all by the author, Kimberly Koz.
Finding Mya is about the special relationship between Mya and Herman. While Mya and Herman (and all the other animals in the book) are real, the story is just a story. Well, a very special story.
Herman is part of a litter of kittens Mya's grandmother is fostering until they're old enough to adopt. Mya helps her grandmother with the kittens, and forms a special relationship with Herman. They're both heartbroken when Herman is chosen to go to a forever home. Mya wants Herman to go home with her! They vow to find each other again.
Herman's new home has a dog that plays too rough with kittens. Herman runs away from his new home before he ever gets in the front door. Along the way, he learns some hard lessons and has a lot of adventures. I don't think it's spoiling anything to say that he and Mya eventually find each other again. After all, if they hadn't, there wouldn't be a story to tell!
The book shows the power of love, friendship, trust, and having faith in all those things. The illustrations are charming. It's only 78 pages long, but somehow in those 78 pages it touches on so many themes. It's a positive, uplifting story about overcoming adversity and living happily ever after.
We all enjoyed this book, even mom. I think this book would make a wonderful gift for little sticky people and cat lovers of all ages. The holidays will be here before we know it and this would be a pawsome holiday gift. Finding Mya is available at Amazon.com.
This review originally appeared on my blog Adventures of a Suburban Kitty. I received this book free for review. All opinions are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars SURE TO BE A BELOVED CLASSIC, October 24, 2014
This review is from: Finding Mya: He can't live Happily Ever After without her (Paperback)
SURE TO BE A BELOVED CLASSIC! I read and loved this book which pulls at your heart and makes you proud to be loved by your pet. Herman is a cat that is separated from his adored girl, Mya. The writer makes Herman come alive as a dedicated thinking kitty and a true friend. I cried for him as he embraces many thrilling adventures that all lead him back to his Mya so they can live their lives together. Herman meets many new friends on his travels but knows he belongs with just one human, Mya. The artwork is engaging and Herman sends adorable tickle thoughts out as he makes his way back to Mya. Finding Mya hits all the right notes and will be read over and over to any age group over the holidays in my home. Loved it. A plus.

Finding Mya is an adorable story that children and adults will love. I loved reading about Herman's adventures while he searched for Mya. I loved the mouse family and the 'tickle thoughts' he shared with Mya. The pictures were also adorable! I look forward to more of Kimberley Koz's books! She is a marvelous storyteller.

I have read the book and love it. I especially like the tickle thoughts. As an animal lover myself and amateur rescuer, the books give a happy ending that every animal should have.
