Books Inc. proudly welcomes the best-selling duo Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham in celebration of Party Hearty Kitty-Corn, the third book starring the beloved Kitty-Corn and friends!


From the bestselling Itty-Bitty Kitty-Corn creators, Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham, comes another heartwarming and hilarious Kitty and Unicorn story about feeling like a "third wheel"--and the enduring magic of true friendship

Kitty has a grand idea.
"Let's throw a kitty-corn party!"

But when newcomer Puppy messes up Kitty's perfectly laid plans and steals Unicorn's attention and affection, Kitty is NOT pleased. When jealousy takes hold, can Unicorn help Kitty see that nothing will ever threaten a friendship as strong as theirs?

The magical, bestselling team of Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham reunite for another heart-bursting story featuring an utterly adorable kitty-corn pair--plus Puppy, too! ARF!--reassuring readers that true friends never run out of love for each other.

 

Praise for Itty-Bitty Kitty-Corn 

"What ostensibly starts out as an almost criminally cute tale of pretend play transforms into something much more: a celebration of claiming and naming one's identity and having it affirmed by others." -- Publishers Weekly

"This newest Hale-Pham collaboration features appealing characters, laugh-out-loud humor, and clever plot twists."-- Booklist

"Hale and Pham bring the charm and whimsy of their Princess in Black series to this picture book, conveying the same message of self-love and confidence with the candy-colored art and a wide-eyed, bushy-tailed feline who is the dream of cat meme makers everywhere." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"There's poignancy... A paean to self-perception, self-actualization, and finding one's people amongst the neigh-sayers."-- The Horn Book Magazine

"Unicorn fans will definitely identify with Hale's protagonist and respond well to Pham's bright cartoons... Likely to cause some imaginative prancing among unicorn and kitty lovers." -- Kirkus Reviews
 

"A breathtakingly adorable picture book. . .capture(s) the poignance of the struggle to find oneself." -- Shelf Awareness

 

LeUyen Pham and Shannon Hale are the team behind the bestselling picture books Itty-Bitty Kitty-Corn and Pretty Perfect Kitty-Corn, the bestselling graphic novels Real FriendsBest Friends, and Friends Forever, and, with Dean Hale, the early chapter book series The Princess in Black. They've made a bunch of other books, too. They are both: moms of kids who love parties, wives to husbands who give them homemade cards, honor award winners (Caldecott and Newbery), caretakers of cats, and believers in unicorns. Pham lives in Los Angeles, Hale lives in Utah, and although they also have friends close to home, their best friend hearts are always entwined.
