Some of the More Interesting Days in My Life So Far

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 4
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Bruno, the cat in the checkered cap, takes life as it comes. When it’s too rainy to go outside, his friends come around for breakfast. When a fish invites him into the river, he follows it. Why not? When the canary forgets how to talk, Bruno helps out.

Days come and go, and for Bruno they always bring something interesting. And once in a while, a day comes along that is just about perfect!

These six linked stories are full of friendship, silliness, and the little moments that make life good.
