A picture of Hello Kitty to illustrate her life story.Many people out there think that Hello Kitty is from Japan…but actually she was born in the city of London, England and still lives there to this day.

Her real name is Kitty White, but she got the nickname Hello Kitty because of how friendly she is and how she’s able to help her friends feel happy even on a bad day.

Her favorite thing to do by far is baking and she loves baking cookies the best. But also she likes to collect cute things like little stars, stickers, and ribbons or listen to music to relax.

Hello Kitty is five apples tall and weighs the same as three apples. Her favorite word is friendship, favorite color is red, and her favorite food is her mom’s homemade apple pie.

His dad is a photographer and was going there to take pictures of the animals so he decided to take his family on a world trip. Dear Daniel was excited to be going on such a trip but it was very hard to be away from his best friend Hello Kitty.

Dear Daniel was gone for a long time and traveled to many places around the world with his dad, mother, and little brother. Meanwhile Hello Kitty kept herself busy in London by hanging out with friends and going on adventures, but of course each missed the other greatly.
