Product Description

About the Author

Author Peggy Krause loves children, and children, in turn, are naturally drawn to her animated personality and quirky sense of humor. This quirky sense of humor is evident in every chapter of Finding My Molly. Krause is an animal rights activist and an avid animal-lover who devotes several hours each week volunteering at a nearby animal shelter. She is quite in tune with the feline psyche and has captured all of their adorable idiosyncrasies within the characters of Finding My Molly for the enjoyment of cat-lovers everywhere. She wrote Finding My Molly in such a way that it would not only entertain, but also make the children think. She wrote it as a timeless lesson about love and loyalty and responsibility. The author lives in a suburb of Chicago with her four cats, Lovie-Dovie, Clementine Clump, Rocco, and Monkey. Peggy’s daughter recently married and she is very anxiously awaiting grandchildren to play with.

HASH(0x95b1b24c) out of 5 stars Enchanting children's book 24 Jan. 2008
By D. P. Groppi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"My nine year old daughter loved Finding My Molly. She has been quoting from the book all week and she doesn't do that unless she loves a book. I had to interrupt her reading the book one night because it was time for bed and she was extremely upset that she had to stop reading it."
HASH(0x95b1b2a0) out of 5 stars Sweet Girl and Cat Story 9 July 2015
By NebraskaIcebergs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finding My Molly by Peggy Krause is a sweet story about the love of a girl and her cat. This chapter book, which is on the National Humane Education Society’s recommended reading list, also contains positive messages about accepting those who are different. Although the style feels a little young for the format, Finding My Molly is an enjoyable read.

Molly loves her cat, Soupy, who she received as a gift about two years ago when Soupy was a kitten. Whenever she eats chicken soup, she saves some for Soupy. Together, they watch television every day. At night, Molly carries Soupy to bed and puts him on her pillow so he can sleep beside her. In turn, Soupy loves Molly. He sits in her lap while she pets him and scratches his throat, which makes his throat rumble. Soupy also gets mad at Molly’s brother, who plays with her toys just to be mean. Although he misses Molly when she leaves for school, and feels curious about the outdoors, he also listens to her order to stay inside.

That is, until one day her darn brother leaves the front door open. At first, Soupy heads to the door with the intention of guarding its entrance, but then he gets lured outside by the smell of fresh air and grass. Still, Soupy doesn’t really have any intention of leaving the security of his home. Then a dog lunges at him, causing him to be scared and to run. Both Molly and Soupy had always assumed that they would be together forever, but everything can change in a moment. Suddenly, both of their lives are filled with the challenge of finding one another, with love being what keeps them strong.

Molly and Soupy both appear ordinary to everyone else but to each other they’re the most special. In truth, while Molly odes help her mother with chores and pay attention to Soupy’s friends, Molly always looks a little unkempt. Her hair is messy. Her knees and hands are constantly scraped. She always wears jam and grass stains. Yet to Soupy, Molly is “the most beautimous human-kitten in the world”. Then there’s Soupy. In truth, “he’s an average-looking orange striped cat with green eyes”. Yet to Molly, “no other cat can compare when it comes to handsomeness.”

Outside of these characters, Ferdinand also serves as an example of accepting those who are different. One night while Soupy crouches in a hollow log from a thunderstorm, he hears a “frightened little sound”. He decides to foster the little kitten he finds, not changing his mind later when he learns that Ferdinand is a baby raccoon. Even Soupy’s friends eventually becomes models of how to love everyone. In trying to console Molly, they get jelly on their fur and even lick her dirty face, but they don’t mind because all of them love Soupy and want to do what would make him happy.

As I noted in my introduction, the style feels a little young for the format. Much of the narrative relies on telling instead of showing who characters are and what is happening to them. In addition, we’re often allowed inside the heads of not just the main characters, but also many of the minor characters. For these reasons, I consider Finding My Molly most suited to primary-aged students or older reluctant readers. Yet pages are dense with text, many chapters are lengthy, and the illustrations are simple black-and-white line drawings. While none of these are negatives in themselves, they’re more suited to elementary-aged students.

I don’t recall where I picked up Finding My Molly. All I know is it’s autographed by the author and has been on my To Read list for a long time. I can see Finding My Molly, which gave me a couple of fun evenings, inspiring young people to write their pet stories. Incidentally, Finding My Molly is apparently just the first in a series of well-received books.

By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Finding My Molly" is a compassionate story about a cat named Soupy who gets lost and manages to survive in a forest preserve while looking for his owner, Molly. During his forest time, he finds an orphaned raccoon whom he adopts as a foster son, mistaking him for a kitten. "Finding My Molly" is charming and whimsical, written from the cat's point of view, using kid-friendly language that will appeal to 8-12 year- olds. Finding My Molly is also recommended reading by the National Humane Education Society. Author/illustrator Peggy Krause clearly understands the ways of cats and children, and this knowledge is brought fully to life in the text and whimsical illustrations of "Finding My Molly."
