The Adventures of Waddles Wigglesworth Book Review by Courtney (7th grade) Do you love to read books about animals? If so, I have a recommendation for you! The Adventures of Waddles Wigglesworth is a wonderful story about a lost kitten, found wet and cold by Miss White. Named Koala, the kitten grows from a desperate kitten into a twenty-three pound tiger cat! This book is great for children of all ages. If you love animals, you will be sure to love this cute book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes animals and has pets of their own. It hooks you in immediately when you start reading. Questions begin to form in your mind: Will the kitten be okay? Is Miss White nice enough to take this kitten in? By the end of the book all your questions will be answered. I highly recommend it.

This is a story about the friendship between an animal lover and a lost, hopeless cat struggling for survival. It was a rainy day at Miss White’s house when she heard what sounded like a kitten crying out in the rain. The kitten was standing under a pine tree, cold and freezing with shivers. Will the kitten be taken in? Can Miss White take care of yet another lost animal? How will this story end? You’ll have to read to find out!
I would recommend this book for children of all ages. If they love animals, they will be sure to love this cute book. <<< >>> Thank You Miss Patti and your 7th grade class!

The Adventures of Waddles Wigglesworth
By Pete Franciosi.
Adorable would best describe this new book about a little cat’s adoption into a family home.
Intended as a children’s book, it would probably also be a perfect gift for adults who are adopting a new member into their midst.
On a deeper level, Pete Franciosi reminds us that extra room can always be found where the heart is engaged. Whether a family welcomes a new pet or child into their midst, there are adjustments to be made by all, ego needs to be brushed aside, and a little good will goes a long way.
Sweet pictures of various pets accompany the storyline throughout The Adventures of Waddles Wigglesworth.
I, for one, am looking forward to reading it with our grandchildren.

I was inspired by my wife to write this story. She is a “stray magnet.” By that, I mean, any homeless animal in the area always managed to find its way to her. At the time we had three cats and five dogs that she took in because she couldn’t bare to see them hungry, lonely and afraid. She referred to them as her “kids” and they responded to her in kind. I wrote this story about one of the cats and thought it would make a nice children’s book.
