Lost and Found Cat: The True Story of Kunkush's Incredible Journey - Cover
Lost and Found Cat: The True Story of Kunkush's Incredible Journey
Doug Kuntz & Amy Shrodes, Crown Books for Young Readers 2017
Kunkush is a beloved cat. When his family must flee the war in Iraq, the mother and her four children do everything they can to keep Kunkush with them. They carry him over mountains, through forests, and across the sea - but when they arrive at the refugee camp in Greece, Kunkush is left behind. Volunteers rescue him and - amazingly - reunite him with his family. A beautiful, true story about refugees that doesn't sweet talk the danger or losses but focuses on determination, love, and strangers helping because it's the right thing to do.
