Mia is Lost
by Jessica Keane
A Mia the Kitten Adventure

Mia is a curious, cheeky kitten looking for adventure. Tempted by the mysterious forest behind her back garden she ventures in. Soon she is lost. Night falls, a thunderstorm strikes and hungry foxes prowl.

Will Mia’s friends find the scared kitten before it is too late? The neighbourhood cats ask a wise owl to lead the search.

Bats with superpowers, two kind deer, a forgetful squirrel and a nosy hedgehog all play their part in this big-hearted animal adventure story that will keep children and adults hooked.

Mia is Lost is Book 1 in the Mia the Kitten Adventure Series. This delightful animal adventure series about a feisty kitten and her forest friends is ideal for kids who love animals, nature and adventure. The illustrated chapter books are aimed at children above the age of six who are ready to step up from picture books to more complex stories with multiple characters. They work well as read together books for young families but can be read alone by competent young readers. I recommend reading the books in order although they work as standalone books as well. Facts about nature and forest animals are woven into the plot that follows kitten Mia as she makes friends and keeps getting into trouble in the woods behind her house. All the books in the series focus on the value of friendship, kindness and the benefits of collaboration.

This is a delightful story about a little black kitten who young readers will fall in love with.

I loved it and so did my granddaughter .

Duncan Richards - 5 out of 5 stars A wonderful debut novel!
I thoroughly enjoyed this charming gem! As a child, I was fascinated with stories about animals, and this would have made it into my top five books along with my favourite collection of stories about a very talkative and imaginative hamster.
I would recommend this book to any child around the age of six or above, or anyone with an interest in stories about nature and adventure.
The plot was gripping throughout and the illustrations were delightful. I can't wait to read the next instalment!

Erin Britton - 5 out of 5 stars Great for reading to younger children or early readers to read
Our daughter (4 years old) avidly listens and loves asking questions about Mia and what she is going to do.
An enjoyable read, highly recommend.
