U.P. author Elizabeth Fust pens ”The Hungry Kitten’s Tale”

April 8, 2022

As a little girl, Fust was distracted at church during the long readings, and maybe hungry as well. Many years later this distraction transpired into a delightful tale of a mischievous kitten based on Luke's Gospel account of the feeding of the 5,000 in the Bible.

"I wondered about other characters," she said. "I fleshed out a skeleton from the snippets of history."

Illustrated by Mary MacArthur, the book is set in the town of Bethsaida.

Fust treated the tale of Kit from a historical perspective and did research on the location of the feeding of the 5,000.

"Luke gave a lot of details," Fust said.

Protagonist Kit is always looking out where his next meal is going to come from when a man visits Bethsaida followed by 12 guys and 5,000 people.
