This is a portrait of Caterina, Leo, and Stripey. It was taken as a gift for mother's day. Mothers are very important even when you don't see them much.
Leo's favorite kerchief is more than just a perky red fashion statement. It's a cape, a backpack, a stripey holder, a snack carrier, and so much more.
Caterina is a little brown bird with great big colorful thoughts. She loves to plan fun things. With all her lists and hard work she's ready for any adventure, even if its not the one she's expecting.
The Caterina stories take place in Caterina’s Corner. Caterina and Leo live near the California coast in a large tree overlooking a small abandoned orchard.
They have many neighbors including (amongst others) Le0's best friend DigDig -a strawberry loving hamster, Paul -a showtune singing wild peacock, Patrick -a sushi loving bear and Caitlyn a firefighting raccoon addicted to taco pizza.
Caterina loves collecting. She can't help herself, it's her nesting instincts. Some of what she collects are objects that remind her of friends, family, and places she loves. Click the arrows to learn about some of her favorite things. Can you find these objects in Caterina's book, CATERINA AND THE PERFECT PARTY?
