Children's E-book for 7-9 year olds

Milly and the Chittens by Julie Scott (published by Pear Jam Books)

Milly and the Chittens
Milly McGinty is the first to say she is not bedroom-proud. There's dirty clothes, rotting potatoes, chip packets and discarded toys on the floor. Milly soon discovers that under the chaos is hiding an even bigger surprise: a trio of mysterious creatures. The half-kitten, half-chick fluffies are so strange she's not even sure they're real. She nicknames them the chittens and tries to rear them without her mum knowing at first, and other people who might wish to harm them. Milly realises it is not easy hiding chittens when they're feisty and full of mischief but soon finds out there's an extra bonus looking after chittens.
 
A story about believing in yourself and persevering with your dreams. A delightful chapter book for 7-9 year olds.  Young girls will fall in love with the chittens, chuckle with the humour and want to keep reading until the end to see how Milly solves the problems.

Julie Scott has been writing for most of her life. She has a collection of degrees from various universities, Julie Scottincluding a Ph.D. in Vision Science and a Master of Creative Writing. She lives in a very messy house with her husband, three kids and an excessively bouncy Irish terrier called Finn. But, unfortunately, no chittens.
