Marlborough – Toto the Tornado Kitten and author Jonathan Hall were at the Marlborough Public Library Nov. 23 to read to the children, autograph books, and pose for pictures. Children in attendance were invited to bring their own stuffed pets to learn animal care and had their faces painted.
Hall and his wife were some of the people first on scene after the tornado hit Brimfield in 2011.?Toto was only six days old and somehow managed to survive this ordeal, and, after being nursed back to health, was adopted by the Hall family.
Hall said Toto was the inspiration for the books, “Toto the Tornado Kitten” and “Oh Toto! Where did you go?”?All proceeds go directly to help animals in need via the Animal Rescue League of Boston and the
Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center Foundation. To date, they have raised $42,000.
