Hopeless, worthless, afraid of everything! Where could a fearful cat go? People left them and strays found their own way, to a place in the woods where all were welcome… and not just welcome, but appreciated.
Miss Hazeltine knew that with kindness and encouragement even the most timid creature could have a chance to shine.
She gave lessons on climbing, bird basics and every day they practiced pouncing.
She showed the cats how to hold their tails high, to arch their backs and to think good thoughts.
To Crumb the most apprehensive of them all, she confided that she was herself, afraid of mushrooms and owls…and that she had never liked the dark. She praised his love of pitch-black places.
So when Miss Hazeltine does not return from fetching the milk, the cats true test of love over fear begins.
This is a magnificent story!
Written and illustrated with wit and intelligence, Miss Hazeltine’s Home for Shy and Fearful Cats is a story of transformation and inner courage. It shows that everyone has worth and when it really matters, we can overcome our fears and together achieve what once seemed impossible.
This heart warming story is also hilarious!
“At Crumb’s miaow, the cats stared down the mushrooms. They purred to drown out the hoot of owls”. And though at first they were very, very scared, something was happening. “The cats felt it in their chests.”
A brilliant book which addresses overcoming fears, finding a community and discovering inner strength through love and courage. Delicious!BUY – Miss Hazeltine’s Home for Shy and Fearful Cats
