About the Book

Are you afraid of anything?
Is there something that makes you shudder when you see it?

Most of us are afraid of something. But we can conquer those fears. In her book, Sweet P. the Cat Lives on a Houseboat, author Joan Durbin tells us how Sweet P. overcame his fears. Everyone knows cats are not great fans of the water. But Sweet P. lives with the Captain and the Beautiful Lady on a houseboat. Sweet P. and his friend Bubba not only have adventures on the water but learn the value of friendship and trust. Beautifully illustrated by Ruth Ann Cowling, Sweet P. the Cat Lives on a Houseboat teaches an important lesson in a fun way.
