Just Released! A New Book set in Washington DC!

We’re so proud of our very own Kitty Felde! You see she was the scriptwriter for our Rascals in the White House; Join the Gang walk. We think it’s a totally charming script and so do guests who have joined Quentin Roosevelt on this walk around his former White House neighborhood.

And now we love meeting Fina and following her adventures at the U.S. Capitol in Kitty’s newest book:

Welcome to Washington, Fina Mendoza

Legend has it anyone who sees the Demon Cat of Capitol Hill will be cursed with bad luck. 10-year-old Fina Mendoza just saw it. And the last thing her family needs right now is more bad luck. 

Welcome to Washington Fina.jpg

Fina just moved to Washington, D.C. to live fulltime with Papa, a congressman from California. Fina loves riding the Capitol subways, grabbing snacks in Congressional offices, and especially spending more time with Papa – even though he’s always on the phone. 

But after Fina encounters a mysterious cat, disasters follow. Jars of spaghetti sauce explode. Her beloved Abuelita breaks her leg. And Fina’s only friend in Washington, a congressional dog named Senator Something, becomes the target of the cat’s wrath. 

The only way for Fina to save her family from future “cat”astrophe? She must solve the mystery of the Demon Cat of Capitol Hill…

Kitty's first middle grade mystery is available now through Black Rose writing.
