Praise For Backstage Cat…
The New York Times cheers for Jenni Desmond's Blue Apple debut, Red Cat Blue Cat:
"Feline foes and rivalries masking secret jealousies are not new subjects. Nonetheless, the warring yet endearing cats in Jenni Desmond's "Red Cat Blue Cat" are welcome company. The story, with its nod to "Little Blue and Little Yellow" and other tales of friendship and differences, hits all the familiar beats. But it does so with a generous dose of humor, adept storytelling and spot-on detail." --The New York Times
