Books Inc. Campbell welcomes Karen Obuhanych to our regular story time by the Blue Gorillas in celebration of her new picture book This Little Kitty! 

With a bold, graphic style and a bouncy, rhyming text, this picture book catches rascally kittens being their adorable (and mischievous!) selves from morning to nap to night.

This little kitty starts the day and meows, "Wake up! It's time to play! All the little kitties get out of bed. Their bellies grumble--it's time to be fed.
Read along as these frisky felines pounce and play, claw and climb, and snack and sleep --until daylight fades and these little kitties are ready to receive some love and affection. Filled with bright and playful illustrations, here is an adorable picture book by debut author-illustrator Karen Obuhanych, featuring many delightful cats --all brimming with purrsonality --that will charm cat lovers and kids alike.


"Filling her book with catnaps, clawed curtains, and hairballs, Obuhanych (making her authorial debut) clearly knows her subject well. But her illustrations are where the kittens come to life; each furball has their own distinct personality, especially through half-lidded stares as they deliberately get into mischief. Sure to have cat lovers rejoicing." -- Kirkus Reviews 

"Fans of felines will appreciate the level of detail to kitty quirks (including their tendency to hack up hairballs in the most inconvenient places), and the bouncing rhyme and loveable fur-babies might just well charm even the most stridently cat averse." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Undeniably adorable." -- Booklist 


Karen Obuhanych is the illustrator of the upcoming Annie's Cat Is Sad (Feiwel and Friends). She was raised in California, where she enjoyed the outdoors, sports, and doing anything creative. Inspired by annual trips to Hawaii, where her father grew up, Karen moved to Oahu to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting. Karen currently resides on the Big Island of Hawaii. This Little Kitty is her debut author/illustrator book. Visit her at ktoart.com and follow her on Instagram at @kto_art.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
