LUIS AND TABITHA by Stephanie Campisi.jpg

"Cat and cartoon lovers, as well as romance aficionados, will lap up this cheerful confection" - Kirkus Reviews


Luis is an alley cat who has everything figured out . . . until he meets Tabitha, a beautiful indoor cat. Separated by a tragic glass door, Luis will do anything to be with Tabitha - —even brave the dangers of a fire.

With adorable illustrations and undeniable style, Luis and Tabitha is the story of two star-crossed kitties who prove that true love conquers all.


 It was love. Love from afar. Love from far too afar.
