Silver and Spot Find a Home

by Meryl Martin
Illustrated by Craig Orback

Silver and Spot sat all alone in the big woods above the bay. Tall trees and large bushes surrounded them, and below the forest the harbor glistened. It was a gorgeous sight.

But the beauty of the day was lost on the sad kittens. The day before, Mother had gone out to find food and never came back. Her babies were only six weeks old and didn’t know how to hunt or take care of themselves yet. They missed the warmth of their mother. At night the trees seemed scary, as did the bay that reflected the moon.

“Where is Mother?” Silver whined to his brother for the hundredth time.

“I’m not sure,” consoled Spot as he slowly groomed his striped fur. “Maybe she’s just lost. I’ll bet she finds us soon.”

But Silver wasn’t so sure. Would the scared kittens ever see Mother again? Would they meet humans who would care for them? Find out in Silver and Spot Find a Home. With 13 full-color illustrations by Craig Orback, the book is a wonderful early reader for ages 7 and up, and works great for humane education programs too.
