Adopting One Cat brings laughter and color to the life of a lonely alien who sees with her heart-- until they are unable to prevent his impending trip over the Rainbow Bridge.
But that's not the end of their friendship.
One Cat will make you giggle, break your heart and rebuild it bigger and stronger than ever. Its sixty deceptively simple illustrations tell a complex, wordless tale that is experienced rather than read.
Simple and poignant, it follows in the footsteps of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince and Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree, in that the first of many readings can happen in childhood. As it contains no dialogue it's easily understood by children, but adults find it captivating and full of meaning and memories.
Petrie Serrano is a New Yorker who came to Georgia by way of South Dakota. She finally settled not far from the Appalachian Trail with her husband, her son, two live cats, several uninvited scorpions-- and a ghost cat named Loki who graciously takes the blame for eating all the fresh cookies.
