About the Book
Fat Cat and Chickadee with Olivia Owl is a short rhyming picture book. Olivia Owl watches as a fat cat and a chickadee develop a relationship of love and kindness. She thinks, “Fat Cat and Chickadee? What an unlikely pair.” Chickadee falls out of her nest and lands in Fat Cat’s hair. It’s a heartwarming story about an old, fat cat who helps a baby chickadee fly. The fat cat, who was somewhat of a weakling when he was just a kitten, was helped by the chickadee’s mother and will never forget her love and kindness.
