What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

An adorable kitty helps a young girl understand the nature of friendship in this sweetly uplifting picture book. Ella and Maddy are best friends. But one day Maddy says she is moving away, and she asks Ella to look after her cat, Marmalade. Both Ella and Marmalade cry and cry when Maddy leaves. Ella tries to do fun things–like pick apples, stomp through puddles, and ice skate on the pond–but somehow nothing is fun without her friend Maddy. Then one morning Ella finds Marmalade curled up by her feet, and as they spend more and more time together, a unique friendship begins to grow. A Year with Marmalade is a charming book about about losing friends and making new ones. Set against a beautiful backdrop of the turning seasons, this story of transition reminds us that change, while constant, is not always a bad thing.
