My very first plush animal!

I just happen to find this today. I guess the publishers of my book, "L" is for Library, decided to create a plush animal from my little cat character. You can see how little involved I am- I don't even own one! This is the first time one of my characters turned 3D, and they even gave him a name, Cal D. Cat. Though, he was really based on my fat little Leah cat.

I followed Leah around the house for weeks with a camera to research this book. Cats have very dull lives.

Leah on her ugly chair. Just don't dare to use it.

It looks like Leah approves of the book, but really she's just trying to figure out how to knock it on the floor. Then she'll move on to chew on all my brushes seen in the background.
