Blog tour: Alzheimers Research – Little Kitty by Caterina Longtail & co! @brookcottagebks @aruknews

This morning’s blog post is a rather special one as it extremely significant. As soon as I saw the information about this book, I knew I had to show my support in any way that I could, granted, not as much as the authors involved have!

All of the authors involved in ‘Little Kitty the Cat Burglar’ have donated their time free of charge and have written one chapter of the book each. All proceeds from the book will go to Alzheimers Research UK. You can find out more about the charity right here. The amazing authors involved are: Suzan Collins, Tottie Limejuice, Jo Wilde, JB Johnston, Lucy Rayner, Ros Lyons, Ann Bowyer and Tracy Terry. Together, they became known as Caterina Longtail!

Buying this cute book will not only give you a lovely bedtime story to read (for yourself or to a child!), it will also help to support a charity carry on their vital work in aid of such a devastating disease.

‘We are the UK’s leading research charity aiming to defeat dementia. We power world class studies that give us the best chance of beating dementia sooner. Our pioneering work focuses on prevention, treatment and cure. We are energising a movement across society to support, fund and take part in dementia research. We aim to empower people across all generations through greater understanding of dementia. Together we have the power to defeat dementia.’

‘Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but there are other types of dementia too. It is possible to have more than one type of dementia at the same time. Alzheimer’s is sometimes seen with vascular dementia or dementia with Lewy bodies. You might hear this called ‘mixed dementia’. (all info taken from Alzheimer’s Research UK website).

What does TWG think?

With a beautiful looking book like this, how can you NOT like it? This gorgeous book is a perfect little read for both and adults and children. Plus, it has outstanding illustrations, so if you don’t fancy reading it, at least you have the option to look at the cats! My three-year old daughter loves looking at this book and has claimed it as her new bedtime story. If, like me, you’re an avid reader and may want something lighter to read in between your other books; ‘Little Kitty the cat burglar’ will be perfect. Perfect length, stunning illustrations AND all for a good cause too. It really is a win win situation.

    A beautiful collaboration between many authors created this book to support a great cause. My Dad died of dementia/alzheimer’s in 2014, so research into this very prevalent disease is extremely personal for me. Please support, and thanks to The Writing Garnet for posting this.
