Another "new" favorite and I wish I had found this earlier when I was growing up.

The illustrations are some of the best from Robin James while they fit the book so perfectly. It is also just enough to read the pictures.

I love the concept that Fanny goes around her business and isn't bothered by her missing leg. Sadly it is the other creatures that see she is different and it isn't the baby animals who want to talk with her. Instead their elders tell them or block them from speaking while mak

Recommends it for: Any child.

This is one of the Serendipity series books. This one is about a cat that is missing a leg. I don't remember the plot, but I do remember the illustrations.

Author Stephen Cosgrove and illustrator Robin James have created a book about a three-legged cat who finds friends and happiness.
A longer book about a cat that only has three legs but isn't really accepted by the other animals on the farm.
