Finn and Puss by Robert Vescio and Melissa Mackie
EK Books, 2017. ISBN 9781925335507
When Finn, a lonely little boy, finds a lost cat it would seem their problems are solved. Finn has a friend and the cat has a home. But then Finn spots a poster advertising the cat as lost . . . Will he return it or is their friendship more important to him?
Told in a few words but with exquisite illustrations that are as gentle as the story but rich in emotion and detail, this is a story which explores the connections between a child and a pet and how hard it can be to do the right thing. But sometimes that right thing can have its own reward.
