Adrian Raeside

July 20th, 2023

Saying goodbye to a feline friend is never easy. In the illustrated children’s book Paradise for Cats (Harbour $19.95), Adrian Raeside has created a heavenly utopia where cats, dogs, birds and mice all get along. This cat-centric tale purrfectly compliments Raeside’s bestseller The Rainbow Bridge: A Visit to Pet Paradise (Harbour, 2012), only this time we follow the story of young Amy and her cat Rocky. When Rocky passes away, Amy gets to visit her at the Rainbow Bridge, a paradise where she learns that there’s a happily fur-ever after for pets and their human companions. Raeside brings hope and humour to an otherwise sorrowful topic in this charming book about the love between people and their pets. 9781990776175
