Excerpt Time - The Wild Turkeys
"The Lost Colors" is on Kirkus Review's 36 Great Indie Books Worth Discovering list

Beautiful new covers and "highly recommended" review!

I am so excited to be working with the amazing artist Claudie C. Bergeron. Claudie is redoing the book covers for The Lost Colors (book 1), The Missing Cats (book2), The Wild Turkeys (book 3), The Forgetful Ferret (book 4) and The Coyote King (book 5.) 

The hard cover edition of The Lost Colors is now available for order through the wholesaler, Ingram. This means that libraries, schools, and bookstores can now purchase the book. 


When a rogue experiment removes all colors from the world, a girl and her talking cat must save humanity from cat-astrophe. 

No one is more surprised than young Caitlin Maggert when she wakes up to her cat Rio talking to her and the world around them suddenly cloaked in grays without any colors. But when they team up with Caitlin's best friends to investigate the odd phenomenon, they discover a much larger sinister plan underway... and it's up to them to stop it, before it's too late.

A brilliant scientist, a criminal mastermind, world destruction... come face to face with three clever girls and a talking cat in this thrilling chapter book. 

Middle grade chapter book for ages 7 - 12. 

$24.99 (hardcover), $9.99 (paperback), $3.99 (kindle) Available wherever books are sold. ISBN 979-8-9860700-0-1

"Sally Alexander does a fine job of capturing the mystery as well as the fun interactions between friends and felines on a mission. ... Advanced elementary to middle grade libraries seeking engaging, whimsical mystery adventures to attract kids to the written word will find all these elements and more in The Lost Colors, which injects a dose of humor into the mix for added value and fun. It's highly recommended for its unexpected twists and turns, the dual profile of a Ragdoll cat who becomes even more extraordinary, and the young owner who loves him whether he can talk or not." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review and Editor, Donovan's Literary Services.
