Make your own Coco – Coco Paper Doll printable
Once there was a small kitten named Coco.
Coco lived on the top floor of the tallest building on Meowington Avenue. Her days were filled with action, excitement, noise and activity. And nothing made Coco happier than being a Big City Kitty.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR
Laura is a children’s book author with a particular fondness for wildlife, anthropomorphics and ice cream. She fell for the magic of children’s books through reading with her first son, and soon began creating picture books that would help recreate that joyful ritual for other families. She has created four picture books together with her husband, Philip Bunting. Coco: Big City Kitty is her first picture book series, illustrated by Nicky Johnston.
Laura lives amongst the gum trees on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, with her husband (illustrator Philip Bunting), three small children, a couple of wallabies, and lots of noisy kookaburras.
