This is book number 1 in the Kitten Construction Company series.
An adorable troupe of highly trained builders attempt to take on the most challenging of construction projects—but nobody will let them work because they are cute kittens! Shrewd and understated, this full-color graphic novel captures the kittens’ collective struggle to be taken seriously in a good-natured, amusing way. — Aubrey Restifo
Awww kittens are soooo cute! They are fluffy and adorable and sweet and look so cute in their hardhats! Must post to social media! Never mind that these kittens are carpenters, plumbers and electricians. They can build! They light things up! They can plumb the plumbing! Never mind how cute they are... just take them seriously and you will see what amazing things they can do. Yet, of course, the humans cannot take them seriously (after all, do you take your cat seriously when they “must get red dot”?) On top of everything else, the adorable illustrations help keep the theme and humor humming along. — Jeanette
All Marmalade wants to do is build things.
She is, after all, a trained architect.
She’s also a distractingly adorable kitten.
Fed up with not being taken seriously because she's so cute, Marmalade bands together with a handful of other aspiring builders—all of them kittens. But in a world where humans call the shots, can the Kitten Construction Company prove their worth . . . without giving up the very things that make them kittens?
(Don't worry, dear reader, the answer is definitely "yes"!)
"Green's graphic novel is…adorable...will keep young readers giggling, and many will identify with Marmalade's plight...A winner of a tale, well-constructed and, dare we say, cute."—Kirkus
"Don’t be fooled by the smiling kittens in construction hats adorning the cover—this lighthearted graphic novel doles out an important message about the dangers of judging by appearances." —School Library Journal
