Papa Piccolo

by Mary Ann Kelley

Papa Piccolo by Carol Talley

Piccolo shows boys and girls about sharing their strength with those who are smaller, younger, or weaker.

Piccolo leads a life full of adventure and possibilities. And then two homeless kittens decide to adopt the free-spirited Piccolo. "I'm not a Papa cat," objects Piccolo. "I'm a tomcat."

Children will delight in seeing how the kittens help Piccolo discover his own tender heart and a new kind of adventure. And Illustrator Itoko Maeno's watercolor depictions of the canals, markets, byways, boats, and bridges of Venice will delight children.
