New Children’s Book Teaches Importance of Rescuing Animals
Diane Giurco Debuts with "The Adventures of Willy & Nilly"
"This story is about Willy and Nilly, a brother and sister, who live on a farm with their Momma and Poppa in the quiet town of Ol'Kalucky,
Like they do every weekend, Willy and Nilly set off on this fine day to explore the farmlands and enjoy a picnic lunch packed by Momma. They battle with ants and bee stings, and when a storm passes through, the siblings take refuge in an old abandoned fort. After a few minutes of listening to the rain and deciding what to do, Nilly hears a noise. Willy hears it too, and they investigate:
"Oh, look over there in the corner, it's a litter of kittens!" said Nilly. "One...two...three...four...five!" counted Willy. "Where is the mommy cat?" asked Willy. "I don't know," replied Nilly. "I'm going to pick one up," said Willy. "No!" exclaimed Nilly. "First I will have to see if they are friendly."
Nilly slowly approached the kittens. Once she got close to them they all ran over to her and started weaving in and out around her shoes. After the kittens all started to rub their little faces on her and were purring loudly, she knew they were friendly. The children had fun playing with the kittens.
The rain had now stopped. "We're going to go to Aunt Tilly's house now," said Nilly. "Why?" asked Willy. "Because Aunt Tilly has eight cats and she will know what to do for the kittens."
Young readers and listeners alike will delight in the adventures of Willy, Nilly and their newfound kitten friends. With colorful illustrations on every page, Giurco combines important lessons with a whimsical story. She is hopeful that her book will resonate with readers: "Having had the experience of kitten rescuing, I often wondered how could anyone walk past a litter of abandoned kittens? Sadly they do, and there are many homeless animals. I wrote this book in the hope that someone, at sometime, somewhere, will remember my book, and NOT walk past a litter of abandoned kittens!"
