BUY THE BOOK

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"!)

San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year

Praise for Kitten Construction Company: Meet the House Kittens

"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
