This picture book has a sweet simple story that even toddlers can understand and enjoy, but it has a more complex message that'll pull at the heart strings of older readers.  As an adult, I thought the message was sweet and touching.  If you have a special place in your heart for cats, you most definitely should give this book a check out, if not a purchase.  To be honest, if you have a cat this would make a great gift for your child.
