The Secret Life of Lilykins



On the surface, Lilykins lives the life of a typical house cat. But Lilykins has another life – a secret life – that transports her to a world of incredible adventures.
In twenty-six bright, beautifully illustrated pages, The Secret Life of Lilykins reveals to readers, through fun rhyming verse, the fantastical world of its feline protagonist. From hunting a “plain old pigeon, small and mild” who “turned into something else quite wild!” to lording over her couch cushion queendom and striking up conversation with her window perch pal, Mr. Squirrel, Lilykins is a clever, creative, and enchanting kitty who parents and children will delight in telling the tale of, time and time again.
A truly unique, undeniably entertaining addition to the contemporary children’s fiction market, The Secret Life of Lilykins highlights:
  • Diversity in children’s storytelling: Lilykins and her cat brother, Charlie, have two dads, Max and Patrick
  • Environmental awareness: “We all live on this great green earth, so we all should treat it right!”
  • The power of imagination in shaping our reality: “When life slows down or gets dull / I simply close my eyes / And set off on a new adventure / With no limit but the skies”
  • Gratitude for the simple things, and delighting in all of the wonder the world has to offer
About the Author:

  A great read for children of all ages. It is nice to be able to introduce diversity to our children so they can grow up with open arms and caring hearts.
