Published: February 25, 2012
About the book: For ages 3-9…what do you do when your cat is so disgusting and stinky that you can’t stand to be within 15 feet of him? If you are like Icky’s owner, Candy, you find a way to make it work for you! But as Candy soon finds out, sometimes our best ideas can also be our worst!
About the author: Maranda Russell was born in Muncie, Indiana, but now resides near Dayton, Ohio. She is a children’s author and book reviewer, a foster parent and an enthusiastic lover of cereal and ice cream. She currently writes stories for children based on the experience she has gained over the years as a teacher, foster parent and former child. Of course, the “former” part is questionable since this author still enjoys indulging her “inner child” on a regular basis.
