A Creature is a children's picture book that aims to build appreciation for an animal that contributes greatly to daily life, in a way that does not personify the animal. The story is a series of poems that form a narrative about a rooster and a flock of chickens. Whilst the book does not place human characteristics upon the creatures, there are several human lessons to be learned from it. A Creature is certainly more than your traditional children's picture book!
The 36 page book was written and illustrated by Catherine Warren in 2015. A self-published work, it is Catherine's first book.
In February 2016 Catherine Warren launched a Crowdfunder through the New Zealand website, Pledgeme.co.nz. Her Crowdfunder met it's target and she was able to meet the costs of the first print of the book.
