Josie the Cat has a special relationship with a monastery. She is the abbot's cat. Visit with Josie as she gives 3 young children a special visit in a monastery. Josie tells the reader of the family's visit to the Abbot's cell, watching monks garden and sew, and taking part in an all-night vigil. Of course, Josie doesn't pray all night . . . she is busy chasing mice. This delightful book ends with a Feast Day in the Church, when monks, nuns, and pilgrims all gather in joy to celebrate. Children of all ages will love this book, and will be a little more familiar with monasteries, a very important part of Orthodox Christianity for all age groups. Illustrated by Sarah Selby.

About the Illustrator Sarah Stockton Selby was born an animal lover. She graduated from Kirkland (now Hamilton) College in 1975 with a double major in biology and art. Realizing that it was more important to be a Christian than an animal artist, she started on a path that led her to the Orthodox Church. She studied some iconography with Vladislav Andrejev and became a reader at Saints Sergius and Herman Orthodox Church in Syracuse, NY.
