Katrina brought death, devastation, and destruction
to Louisana in 2005. Thousands of people were evacuated
before the hurricane struck. Some chose to stay in
their homes. Rescue workers worked hard to find stranded
pets. Many pets were abandoned. A dog named Bobbi
and a cat named Bob Cat were abandoned. Bobbi was
helpless to save himself because he was chained to
his porch. Bob was even more helpless. Together, they
lived the Hurricane but afterward, they needed to
find food and water. Bobbi managed to pull his chain
free, and together they set out on a day-by-day quest
to survive. They found help in several places, people
willing to give them food, buildings, rescue workers,
and later, shelter staff who made a remarkable discovery.
Bobbies, A True Story of Hurricane Katrina, Friendship,
and Survival is a powerful introduction to Hurricane
Katrina, focusing on these two animal friends, their
ordeal, and the people who finally found them a home.
The realistic illustrations, done in soft pastel shades,
present glimpses of the devastated city and serve
as a backdrop for the animals' struggles.
