‘Kate the Cat’s Christmas Mystery’ Wins Coveted Purple Dragonfly Book


CHANDLER, AZ (June, 2017) – The judges of the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which

recognizes excellence in children’s literature, have spoken, and Kate the Cat’s Christmas Mystery

by Nicole Nageli won Honorable Mention Award in the Youth Author Fiction category.

“Winning any place in the Purple Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to

maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards, a minimum score is required before a First or

Second place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a

category,” explains Linda F. Radke, president of Story Monsters LLC, the sponsor of the Dragonfly

Book Awards. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the

book is still in print.”

Kate the Cat’s Christmas Mystery written & illustrated by Nicole Nageli, is an inspiring &

thrilling graphic novel for kids ages 5 and up. Kate & her animal friends solve the exciting mystery

behind the Star-lighting on top of Castle Rock in Colorado. It retails for $9.99 and can be purchased

online at
