From the Inside Flap
In this sequel to The Bumpedy Road, Kiska moves far away from her homeland in Mexico. In her first book she wrote about following her family to the United States. In this book she will accompany them on their next move to Canada. Her beloved Miss Cassandra and Miss Ticiana have grown into lovely young adults with lives of their own. Kiska now begins a new facet of her life and adds new pieces to her own puzzle.
One of the advantages of writing is becoming someone else: climbing inside someone elses skin and heart. By imaging part of myself into a cat I can enable Kiska to imagine part of herself into a human. Thats where our magical relationship begins, and that is how we can communicate to author a book.
In Rain City Cats Kiska discovers that her needs have changed as she copes with new beginnings. Armed with curiosity and resolve, she searches for her niche in British Columbia. In this, her Canadian story, she entertains, educates and touches us once again. Kiska articulates the things that we have all felt, but she speaks with feline wisdom and clarity. Her understanding of the human character is amusing, poignant, and endearing as she narrates the struggles and riches of her life. Once again, I am honored to be her spokesperson.
