About The Book

Willy is an indoor cat who’s never been outside:

“Those outdoor cats are somewhat strange— and not like us,” said Dad.
But Willy whispered to himself, “I bet they’re not so bad.”

Curious Willy ventures out one frosty morning and joins in the outdoor cats’ Winter Carnival fun. He invites his new friends home at day’s end, but will they be welcome? Amid all the seasonal joy, Willy’s story encourages tolerance and getting to know people before judging them.
