This is a very sweet and engaging book for children. I love its simplicity but it still gets across a very powerful message. This is a tale about a one eared cat trying to find his place in the world. We know how cruel it can be if we are perceived as 'different' by others. This is a book about acceptance and being brave enough to not hide and to be able to shine with your own uniqueness. A touching and poignant read which I think every child should hear/read.
