Two Bobbies: A True Story of Hurricane Katrina, Friendship, and Survival

Authors Kirby Larson and Mary Nethery, two real-life best friends, found a way to combine their very different writing styles into this beautiful and poignant book.

Bobbi (a dog with a bobbed tail) and Bob Cat (also with a bobbed tail) traveled together for months after Katrina, barely managing to survive. Expect tears when their astonishing secret of friendship is revealed near the end of the book.

The book is illustrated by Jean Cassels, from New Orleans, whose painful memories of Katrina almost made her turn down the job.
