CROSS KATIE KROSS
An enchanting mother-daughter collaboration, sure to become a treasured storytime favourite
In this charming children’s story from award-winning author Donna Morrissey and her daughter, Bridgette, we meet Katie Kross, a curmudgeonly old woman who hates just about everything. Katie becomes so fed up with life on her farm that she decides to leave her home in search of Love Valley: a beautiful, idyllic place where she can be on her own, away from tedious chores, pestering neighbours, and pesky animals. But Katie’s journey leads her to learn that sometimes dreams come true in the most surprising ways. Donna’s lovely story is accompanied by her daughter Bridgette’s charming and quirky illustrations.
