Meet The Writer

My name is Kassie Shipley-Jenkins. The Mischievous Minty cat stories were written in 2007 when I lost my first cat Porsche.
I am a mad passionate reader and can always be found with a book in my bag, I have been writing all my life since a very young girl, where I would always change the endings of all the books.
I am now a full-time carer for my father, and we still reside with my brother David. During the lockdown, a curious set of incidents that happened all in the same week that led to the stories bringing Mischievous Minty to Life again.

Having read your children’s short stories of book one, In the garden for older children, then seeing and reading the picture book version for small children.
The animals personalities, I really love it! you’ve only used that technique to help them communicate their personal habits and natures. To me, this really reads as a warm and engaging way of introducing young children to the natural world within their reach. I found it very inspiring.
I particularly liked the way your picture book version uses fiction to teach children about the wildlife in their garden, to fit the format of a dual role for the book as both an enjoyable story and a gentle ‘natural history’ for children. “Beautiful books with a distinctive voice” – and your children’s story certainly fits that bill.
Your story is very original, and your descriptions of the animals and their habits are beautifully written. This book would be exactly the subject I enjoy.
I very much enjoyed your beautiful and evocative way of writing about wildlife.

The website is a fantastic piece of art showcasing the books. It draws you in so much it wants you to look and see more. The illustrations are wonderful they are perfect for the stories. It is drawing people into your world, and they enter and see it through your eyes. The Audio does the same it asks you to follow the Story Tellers as she takes you on the journey of the story and you are drawn to her voice as she is telling the story, exactly how she wrote it. I am looking forward to getting my first book it looks amazing. It is very well done. Don in Devon.

The books are very well written, I thoroughly enjoyed the stories, liked that they were short. I loved the characters with names. My only advice would be for a children’s book make the pictures much larger and that will brighten them up, so that the children can see the characters, but I liked the drawings. I loved it, I can not wait for book 2. Well done, keep going you are really good at them. I would like to read more of them, children will love them, I do.

Review of Book one, In the garden. I have been personally asked to review The Mischievous Minty Cat Stories, Book one.
The new children’s short story book before anyone else sees it, as it not on the market yet.
I think that people will definitely enjoy reading them.
I have chosen The Exceptional Tobias Toad, as my favourite short story, from this book.
A brilliant read, very good images including the book cover of the garden, and I found it a very creative story.
