“While he’s out for a walk in the autumn woods, Mr. Cat discovers a wee, thumb-sized girl who brings love, light, and laughter into his regimented days. The little sprite spreads joy and inspires creativity, brightening the cold winter months. Her bare feet and sunny yellow dress stand in contrast to Mr. Cat’s formal manners. This is a bittersweet tale of hope; it celebrates the beauty and transience of life and the passing seasons.” – Foreword Reviews
