Tiny, brave, playful kitty goes on an adventure through the crowded, noisy city in a story about finding love and kindness in unexpected places. 

The kitten’s bravery, loneliness, playfulness, joy, camaraderie, and curiosity create a rich, emotional journey. The story reflects Tim Miller's passionate advocacy for animal rescue.

No tiny kitty fan will be able to resist this triumphant story of overcoming the odds in the big city.


Praise For Tiny Kitty, Big City


"The clever structure, a story told entirely through two-word phrases composed of adjectives and then the nouns “kitty” and “city,” makes for a hypnotic, satisfying read-aloud experience. A cozy story for cat lovers and anyone looking for a happy ending."
— Kirkus Reviews



“Miller (Horse Meets Dog) chronicles his protagonist’s travels with compositions that range from bird’s-eye views to dramatic low angles, while the abbreviated text may remind readers of their own pets’ epithets: 'Noisy city./ Hiding kitty'; 'Wildlife city./ Playful kitty.'”
— Publishers Weekly

“The illustrated cartoonlike spreads, done in acrylic gouache, enable children to follow the journey of the orange-and-white cat as she navigates the busy metropolis and finds kindness and love.”
— Booklist


"This clever book will appeal to all children, as adventure, beginning reader, or even as an inviting cityscape to pour over."
