Letters to Jennifer: From Maudie & Oliver: The Updated Edition
Maudie is a prima donna Siamese cat. Oliver is her brother, who doesn’t get enough love because he lives with the prima donna. When their dear Auntie Jennifer becomes ill, they decide to cheer her up by writing letters describing their everyday antics, with the help of their Live-In Person, Sharon Gray.
Whether they’re watching their friends in the garden, jostling for space on their favourite chair, ordering late-night pizza or vying for the attention of humans, Oliver and Maudie will bring a smile to your face.
Sharon Gray has lived and worked in western Canada most of her life. She lives in Winnipeg with Oliver and Maudie, and writes when they tell her to do so.
