Kat and Juju Tour (review & giveaway)

Kat and Juju 
By Kataneh Vahdani 
July 1, 2020 
Two Lions 

An unlikely duo star in a charming story about being different, finding courage, and the importance of friendship in the first book in a new series from an award-winning animation director. 

Kat likes doing things her very own way, but sometimes she doubts herself. So when a bird named Juju arrives, Kat hopes he’ll be the best friend she’s always wanted. He’s outgoing and silly and doesn’t worry about what others think—the opposite of who she is. Bit by bit, with Juju’s help, Kat discovers her strength, and how to have a friend and be one—while still being true to herself. 

“This debut gently encourages personal growth while reinforcing the value of being different.” —Kirkus Reviews 

Kataneh Vahdni’s Kat and Juju is a deliciously sweet new picture book about one little girl, her big new friend, and the power of friendship, bravery, being genuine, and kindness! 

Little readers will be delighted and inspired by the charming story and its gentle message, as they joyously join the darling Kat, with her faithful Juju, as she grows in courage, heart, and spirit. Vahdani’s precious illustrations, with their cool aesthetic sprinkled with fun splashes of color and their whimsically dreamy scenes, bring Kat and Juju to life beautifully. 

Kat and Juju is an adorable and heartwarming story with a lovely message. 

Kataneh Vahdani is a children’s book author and illustrator. Kat and Juju is her first picture book series. She is currently directing her original feature animation movie. Kataneh has been a professor for over seventeen years and she also saves fallen baby birds and rescues them. Together with her students, they have raised over 13 fallen injured baby birds and set them free once they were ready to fly away. Sometimes in her classes, birds fly from the head of one student to the other.
