Oh Harvey. Oh Chester. This really made me appreciate the security in my life.
An eye-catching and cute cover for a middle grade novel about a young cat growing up and being housing and food insecure, being alone, and feeling lonely, worrying about your family, and frightened because of those things. While I noticed the cover first, the title is what really piqued my interest.
Full disclosure - I had to stop reading this at one point because I’m sensitive and it got to me. That being said, this novel really drew me in and I wanted to see what happened to Harvey and the other animals.
I think that children and parents will love Harvey and his story; this is a strong recommendation from me.
** Note for parents of sensitive children, this book has off-page animal deaths, food insecurity, and homelessness.
