'This book is about a small dog called Bonnie. Bonnie belongs to Harry but Harry thinks she doesn't look like a dog because she was so small, not big like a proper dog. Bonnie could sit on Mum's knee at tea time.
I loved the book because on some pages there are little pictures and the book is so interesting. And sometimes when Harry's Mum is shouting the writing is all in capital letters. I would recommend the story to my friends because it is a nice story and there is a happy ending. The book is for boys and girls.'

Bel Mooneys Kitty
Kitty Books

Kitty is my own 'little girl'. But of course that's not true. She 'is' and she 'isn't' - because writers may be inspired by something or someone in real life, but then we make things up. So the Kitty in the stories is a lot like my Kitty when she was little, but she's also meant to be like all other children - boys as well as girls - who love the Kitty stories.

I wrote the first story about this naughty little girl called Kitty not wanting to clean her teeth. Kitty liked it, so I wrote another story .... then before I knew it there were 16 books with Kitty as the heroine, all of them numbered so that you can follow the adventures of Kitty, her family and friends!


'Bel Mooney's delightfully whining, nagging and normal heroine Kitty... Funny, affectionate tales that ring with authentic detail of family life... ' THE INDEPENDENT

Her parents, her best friend Alys, and the restricted life she has always known in their Bucharest tower block are distanced from her - and Daniel, the mysterious new boy at school, seems to be the cause. Flora likes him, but why can't everybody else trust him too? She thinks of her father's words: "People like us can't afford the luxury of new friends."
