The Future of American Fiction

I helped with the spelling - note curious is spelled "cireis" in the illustration - but all words and pictures are K's.

The Cat
written by Kaylene Wood
illustrated by Kaylene Wood

I once had a kitten named Blake. I named my kitten Blake because he was a blake cat. And was very curious.

After that he accidentally ate dog food and got sick because he ate dog food.

He was very tired and so he dropped on the carpet.

Wishing Blake a speedy recovery.

Hilary said...

That's too adorable. I'm cireis though. Did Blake recover?

Laurita said...

I understand Blake. Sometimes I'm so exhausted, I drop in the carpet too.

This was adorable, and what great illustrations!

Poet in Residence said...

Let that be a timely warning to us all.

Ha! Great story! "dropped on the carpet"!! I would too!

There is nothing in the world so precious and sweet as the imagination of a child.

Thank you so much for sharing this, it's been a long time since I got to enjoy anything like it.

From humble beginnings . . .

I like the thought bubble above Blake's head in the second illustration. Is Blake thinking about K.? So cute....

Clowncar said...

Blake is doing fine, Art. Thanks for asking. He's dreaming up his next culinary adventure. Birdseed, maybe.

Funny, Hil. On first read I thought "cireis" was "serious." K was unamused.

Thanks, Laurita. Yes, it is pretty cute. Shoulda seen her face when I showed her I had posted her story for all to read. Like I had pulled a rabbit out of a hat.

Indeed, PiR. Don't eat dog food. Or you'll have to take a nap. Wait, that doesn't sound too bad....

SueAnn, it's a cautionary tale. Eat the food you were meant to eat.

Anytime, Scarlett. She does have that fast narrative flow thing down pretty good.

Yes, Margaret, she has a bright future in cat-centric literature. Cat westerns. Cat detectives. Cat romance fiction.

Sarah, that's not a thought bubble, that's a picture on the wall (suspiciously similar to the one in our actual living room).
