Alyssa Evans (a-madwoman) | 3 comments A children's book that my Mom read to me I think around ages 10-12? Not sure that was the age range, but that's the age I received the book, which would have been 12-14 years ago.

The plot was pretty simple: A lonely woman, who wears many layers of colourful clothing, lives in a trailer by herself, and then finds a kitten. (Might be a puppy or a bird, but I am pretty sure it was a tiny white kitten.)

The art was really beautiful... like definitely not silly cartoons. It was ART. Like hand-painted.

I think the lady was suppose to be a romani woman? If not culturally, she was at least coded in that vibe.

I think the name of the book was the main character's name??
