The True Tale of a Three-Legged Cat
Cathy Conheim, B.J. Gallagher

The more we expose our children to books that promote respect for diversity, compassion, courage, and resiliency, the more we'll see children who thrive in this incredibly complex, diverse world. Oh, how I would love to get this true tale about Henry the three-legged cat into the hands of all children!

At its core, it's about so much more than a cat. I'm not a ''cat'' person, so I normally don't seek out cat stories. Henry's owners, Cathy and Donna, weren't cat people either, and they certainly didn't seek him out. But sometimes we don't always get to decide what happens to us in life. What we do get to decide is how we respond. When Henry shows up with a front leg beyond repair, Cathy and Donna respond in a way that changes their lives as well as the lives of many others.

There are many powerful messages in this book, but I love how Henry's life reminds us that we are not defined by our misfortunes, but by our responses to them. In the back of the book are ''kibbles and bits'' of advice and life lessons from Henry himself. The end of the book actually is only the beginning, as we learn that Henry is now a cat with a mission to help animals and children in need. (Would you believe he receives over 100 emails a day from all over the world?)

When you buy this book from Chinaberry, the author will donate the profits to Animalandia, an organization that works to spay and neuter dogs in Mexico and then find them homes. Dog overpopulation is a huge problem in Mexico, and we want to support Animalandia's efforts to reduce unwanted and neglected cats and dogs.

Henry was named the ASPCA’s Cat of the Year for 2010! See the press release for more details.
