LAFAYETTE, La., May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Pelican Publishing announces the release of Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday, the fifth book in the award-winning children’s book series, The Alycat Series, by Alysson Foti Bourque.
Alycat and Wednesday Cattywampus follows Alycat as she wakes up to dinner for breakfast and a whole day that turns upside down. Readers will follow Alycat’s adventures on her very “cattywampus” Wednesday and learn that a little help from friends and a good cat attitude can make your day!
Alycat and Wednesday Cattywampus was written by Bourque during the pandemic when the world seemed weird, weird, and a little skewed.
“I knew readers needed a resource to deal with an abnormal world, and this story brings comfort on an unusual or strange day,” Bourque said. “No matter how retrograde Alycat’s day is, her friends and family are always there for her, and she can count on them. I hope this book can remind them to turn to their loved ones when their day goes wrong.”
Bourque believes books are a powerful tool for our younger generation and aims to bring more positive and motivating stories into children’s lives.
“This series reflects the themes of friendship, imagination, creativity and perseverance,” Bourque said. “I hope Alycat will encourage young readers to find their special gifts, shine bright, and support their peers.”
To celebrate the release, Bourque is organizing a book launch party by 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on May 14, 2022at the Petit Gym Lafayette. Guests will go completely cattywampus at this free event filled with face painting, gym games, photo ops with Bon Temps Photo Booth and Alycat the mascot, Jolie Cakes Bakery treats, adoptable cats with app, aeronaut Rick Hesler, and Raising Cane’s. A portion of the proceeds from each sale of the new book will be donated to the Wild Cat Foundation.
The Alycat series includes five titles, has won over 17 awards, and has been featured in the official Grammy Swag Bag, Oscar Gift Bag, and the Duchess of York’s YouTube channels, Little Red News, and Storytime with Fergie and Friends.
Bourque began her career as a teacher after graduating from University of Louisiana at Lafayette holds a degree in elementary education and earned a law degree from Southern University Law Center in 2007. After practicing law for almost seven years, it was time to switch from writing court records to writing children’s books. Bourque has been able to support philanthropic initiatives including Foster the Love with First Lady Donna Edwards, Walk to Defeat ALS, The Family Tree, Operation Shower, Wild Cat Foundation, and Hayley’s Bracelet fundraiser for frontline workers.
