Suggested for three to ninety-three-year-olds, anyone who has ever watched a funny cat video on YouTube, bought a cat coloring book, read Dr. Seuss or laughed aloud at their felines will be amused by the rollicking shenanigans of feline brothers Scooter and Oaks presented in rhyme.
On one hand, there's bashful orange Scooter and on the other, self-assured, good-looking Oaks. Each cat’s persona springs forth from full-color pages as they share their thoughts about life with one another and their mom. Like human siblings, the two of them don’t always see eye-to-eye yet each has a special place in the other one’s heart and Mom loves them both!
Introduced to readers by author Phyllis Bartels in 2016 (Scooter ‘n’ Oaks: A Cat Adoption Story) the kittens have grown up and morphed into charismatic cartoon characters. Argentinian artist Nicolas Milano’s caricatures are based on actual photographs of Scooter and Oaks’ real-life behaviors. Written for children, Scooter and Oaks: My Brother, My Mother and Me appeals to adult cat fans, too.
