This book, meant to be read aloud to children ages 4–7, communicates rich theology to a young audience through a conversation between a guilty child and a talking cat. Sophie, a little girl upset after disobeying her parents, learns the basics of the gospel of grace from her neighbor’s cat through a conversation based on the first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism: What is your only comfort in life and in death? That I am not my own, but belong . . . to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. Interweaving accessible truths with whimsical illustrations and engaging rhymes, this book will help children and parents alike understand grace in a fresh way.
“I think kids of all ages will enjoy the intriguing dialogue between Sophie and her neighbor’s cat. It gives parents a lot to think about, too. Even better— everyone will remember the most comforting, time-tested answer to the question of all questions: What is your only comfort in life and in death?”

“Outstanding! A beautifully written and illustrated book. Sophie and the Heidelberg Cat engages the youngest child with its splendid color and images. Written in poetic style, the dialogue between Sophie and the cat visualizes for little ones what guilt, forgiveness, and hope in Christ look like. Our six-year-old was simply riveted.”
