"It is hard to believe this book was written by a ten year old boy. It is
excellent in every way. Engaging storyline with a wonderfully engaging main
character (Comet the Kitten). Teaches children about Halley's Comet in a fun
way. Illustrations are brilliant. I look forward to more adventures with
Reviewer: Lauren Carr, Best-Selling Author and Publisher

Gage is a 14-year-old student. (He was 10 when he wrote his first two books.) He is the second of four children. Gage loves science and his kitten Comet, so he decided to combine the two into fun, learning books for small children. It is Gage's desire to get kids interested in science, save for college, and give to a charity to help animals. With this book, he's hoping to do all three.

Comet is a real red and white short-haired kitten. He recently turned 3 years old. Comet spends his day napping in Jelly Jar and playing with his cat friends.


Don't forget to catch Comet's antics on his Facebook page. (Comet Shepherd)
