The 2018 Stephen Award has now closed. The winner is “Three Kitties that Saved My Life”, a touching memoir by Micheal Meyer featuring a number of very distinctive cats.
The three runners-up were extremely difficult to select, but the judges finally settled on:
- Cat Magic – Sir Kipling, the magical cat, in his own adventure
- The Creatures of Chichester – Purrcasso, the art galley cat, dealing with ghosts
- Familiar Trials – Dascha, the determined and brave familiar
Other memorable mentions go to “Finding their way Home”, a sweet poem about rescue cats, “Rebecca” by Austin Grisham about a Time Travellers cat and “Petectives: Under Fire” – the latest in the feline detective series.
For the 2018 Award, we partnered with CatChat.org, the cat rehoming charity, and donated £1 for each book entered. Bookangel are delighted to announce that the award raised enough to rehome twenty cats.
