You Are a Kitten!
Sherwin Tjia
Book 3 in the Pick-A-Plot Series

You are a couple months out of your mother’s belly. You’re brand new! You don’t even have a name yet. Well you do — but it’s not very nice. The couple that own you fight all the time. So much so that to hurt the other person, one of them stuffs you in a plastic bag and flings you into the canal! As the bag begins to fill with water colder than you’ve ever experienced, a wild panic grips you!

Inspired by the gamebook fad of the 80s You Are a Kitten! is the alarmingly charming prequel to the cult hit You Are a Cat! and its sequel, You Are a Cat in the Zombie Apocalypse! Lavishly illustrated from the first-person feline floor purrspective, this thrilling and thoughtful finale brings the saga of Holden Catfield to a stunning and unforgettable conclusion.
If you decide to claw your way out, scrabble furiously to page 16. If you decide to just stay still and do nothing, curl into a fetal ball on page 8. Or you can simply cry out for your mommy on page 6. The choice is yours! But don’t take too long to decide. The water is already up over your paws, and the only warm thing you have to cling to is the memory of your mother’s tongue licking the back of your head.
