True Story by Marty Chan
True Story is about the boy who cried wolf, or in this case, cat. A sneaky kid blames his two tuxedo cats, Buddy and Max, for causing the mess in his bedroom and disaster in the kitchen. When his kitties create a “cat-caphony” of noise at night, the boy claims he’s innocent, but his pleas fall on deaf ears. His dad doesn’t believe him no matter how loudly he cries, “True Story.” Inspired by his real-life cats, Buddy and Max, author Marty Chan teams up with illustrator Lorna Bennett to create a comedic tale of kittens who are framed. This book is aimed at animal lovers and reluctant readers.
