jet the cat is confused as a bird tells her she "is not a cat" on the cover of this picture book

Jet the Cat (Is Not a Cat)

Jet is not like any other cat . . . but when other animals try to convince her that she’s really a bird or a frog or a goat, she learns to embrace her unique identity. This hilarious story teaches us to celebrate our differences. Get a signed copy from Word on the Street.

“Crede’s tale of individuality and acceptance of self gets its point across in an age-appropriate manner. Little individualists will identify with Jet and respond favorably to Runyan’s cartoon illustrations of wide-eyed animals with bendy limbs and googly eyes” – Kirkus Reviews

Where should I buy your books?

Lots of people ask me about shopping on Amazon vs indie bookstores, and the truth is— both are great. Authors just want our books in the hands of readers whether it's from the library, the small shop on the corner, or online.

But, only my local indie, Word on the Street, offers personalized/signed copies of all my books. Just add a message in order notes!
