Cross Katie Kross is a children’s story written by Donna Morrissey and illustrated by her daughter, Bridgette Morrissey. The main character is Katie Kross, a curmudgeonly old woman who hates just about everything. Katie becomes so fed up with life on her farm that she decides to leave her home in search of Love Valley - a beautiful, idyllic place where she can be on her own, away from tedious chores, pestering neighbours, and pesky animals. Katie’s journey leads her to learn that sometimes dreams come true in the most surprising ways.
The book was published in 2012 by Puffin Canada.
