 Smack-Dabber Irene Latham is proud to announce that her picture book THE CAT MAN OF ALEPPO, co-written with Karim Shamsi-Basha & illustrated by Yuko Shimizu has been awarded a Caldecott Honor!


This book chronicles the true story of Mohammad Alaa Aljaleel, who in the midst of the Syrian Civil War courageously offered safe haven to Aleppo's abandoned cats. It will renew your faith in humanity, and inspire you to act with compassion! We can all improve the world with kind deeds—and yes, love exists, even during a time of war.
