Adventures of an Island Cat named Brupp

Deirdre Kessler


"Kessler vividly depicts the various places that he [Brupp] travels to, in lucid prose that is elegantly descriptive. She has created a charming series of stories with an unforgettable main character that will enchant animal lovers of all ages." -- Lisa Doucet, Woozles Children's Bookstore, Halifax
"In lesser hands, Adventures of an Island Cat Named Brupp might have turned out to be just another bedtime story, but Kessler's feline friend can surely delight Canadians of all ages for years to come." -- Literary Review of Canada

5.5 x 8.5 inches, 308 pages

Brupp is the Prince Edward Island cat who sets out to see the whole wide world. This volume includes the separately published Brupp stories and a new, never-before-published concluding story about Brupp (Book Six: Brupp and the Milk River Orphans). 

Book Four (Brupp Goes West) and Book Five (Brupp Dreams of Home) were originally published as Brupp Rides Again, winner of a Canadian Children’s Book Centre Our Choice Award.

“Kessler has created a flawless story with appealing characters.”—Canadian Children’s Book Centre 

“This is true animal fantasy, with more than a touch of philosophy along the way…. The action is fastpaced as Brupp faces real danger and draws on friendship to escape from it.”—Canadian Materials
