An unexpectedly adorable book about bravery, courage, friendship, and passing it on. The little Roald Dahl-esque illustrations are cute and lend the perfect cat character to the story. The way Miss Hazeltine handles the cats' rehabilitation with love and empathy, sharing some of her own fears along the way, is perfectly returned as the cats and Miss Hazeltine learn that the true antidote to fear is love and friendship.
