Paolo, the hero of Paolo's Adventures, is our precious boy. We were lucky enough to be chosen to be his forever family after he went through his life-saving surgery. Carolyn Banguero has done a wonderful job of telling Paolo's story. I am an elementary teacher and my students loved this book. I think any child will relate to Paolo's bravery and will be enthralled with the illustrations as well. A beautiful picture book that should be in every child's library. We love our Paolo!

I hope anyone who has a healing story of their own can find a kindred spirit in Paolo, the felne hero of this charming true story. People came together to help a little kitty live the best life he can. With the purchase of Paolo's Adventures, we can all come together to help more cats in need. A part of the proft from the sales of this story go to benefit Meow Cat Rescue, a no kill shelter located in Washington State. I hope you enjoy watching this story unfold as much as I did!

Paolo's Adventures is a children's book that I think will be not only entertaining, but will also teach children empathy towards animals (the book is written from the kitten's point of view). It also shows children a little of what it's like to go to the doctor's or a hospital. The kitten has surgery to correct a birth defect, and ends up a normal, healthy cat in a loving home. There are no medical details; the book only focuses on the kitten having to wear a cast for a while and feeling very sleepy after surgery. It's written in a way that makes you cheer for the cat and wonder what his life will be like. It's based on a true story - Paolo has been on KOMO News (Seattle TV station) several times. The illustrations are gorgeous and unique. There are also photos of the cat and his owners. I think it's a book children will want to read over & over.

Great story, congrats! [...] feature=player_embedded
Paolo's Adventures is the tale of a very brave little kitty who was born in the wild with his siblings. Paolo and his siblings were rescued and brought into a foster home. When this small kitten played, he ran out of breath very quickly. This was due to a concave ribcage, pushing his heart and lungs to the side. Paolo had a surgery to correct this and wore a body cast while his body healed. Along the way, Paolo learned how to trust people in his journey of healing.
Paolo was brought to MEOW (Mercer Island Eastside Orphans and Waifs) Cat Rescue for his surgery. MEOW is a non-profit, no-kill cat and dog rescue organization that helps many animals such as Paolo. A percentage of the net proceeds will be graciously donated to MEOW.
