Plain Kate by Erin Bow
This is a lovely tale of a girl and her brave and faithful talking cat. Such a fun fantasy to read! Kate, the daughter of a wood carver and an excellent carver herself, encounters many hardships from her father's death to being accused of being a witch to having her shadow stolen by an actual witch. But through it all, she perseveres. She is a spunky, smart and believable main character and Taggle the cat is totally fabulous! I loved this book and highly recommend it for upper elementary school age and up.
