"I was as delighted as Honker and his human family were to discover that Honker had musical talent. What fun it was to anticipate his featured performance in the school’s winter concert and see how bells and a bunny helped turn that event into a truly memorable experience for all. Add the recurring themes of love and different is OK and the result is another thoroughly pleasing chapter in the life of this very endearing, very special cat. Thanks, Little Honker!"
—Roberta H. Ford, Educator and Children’s Author
Can a cat play music at a school concert?
Little Honker can and did. First he plays a duet and then the bells with the rest of the band. When the bells get loose, the kitty inside him takes over and the excitement begins as Little Honker chases them around the auditorium. Did Little Honker ruin the concert or make it the most memorable one ever?
"Children will love the personality of Warren, the little cat who honks instead of meows. He doesn't like to do everything his brothers and sisters like to do, and that's okay. He is following his own path. We find out though, that even if he is serious about music, he can still be tempted into some good ole kitty fun!" —★★★★★ Reader Review
"This story's message about embracing differences will really resonate with young readers. The author also peppers the story with interesting facts about cats. The lively drawings help to make this a fun book for all ages." —★★★★★ Reader Review
"This book is delightful for beginning chapter book readers. Little Honker is a cat that loves music and has never learned to properly meow, honking instead. This difference leads to a fun story of adventures/misadventures when he is invited to join the musical concert at his human girls' school. Honker, a cat with rhythm, provides a valuable lesson in that we all have our part to play. The illustrations add to the playful nature of this story." —★★★★★ Reader Review
"Great storyline! Easy for kids to read and understand the lessons being taught." —★★★★★ Reader Review
