Two children's books with lessons for us all to ponder.

"What's the Matter with Henry? The True Tale of a Three-Legged Cat"

"What About Me? I'm Here Too!"

Henry, an outdoor mountain cat, was rescued and only an emergency surgery to amputate his left front leg could save his life. The books are not just a story about a cat but about all of us - prejudice and overcoming it, coming to love what we thought we hated, enemies becoming friends, and challenges becoming learning experiences. Henry’s stories seek to tell you, through the eyes of an innocent creature, what our world looks like to an outsider. Henry is able to see the absurdity in things we take for granted. The books are about how we survive our wounds, about transforming tragedy into possibility. Foremost, they're about life as a new adventure. Available at TAILS for $20 each.
