Kevan Atteberry's newest picture book, Ghost Cat, is one that'll I'll keep close to my heart. I choked up reading it because I miss my old cats so much (I have two rescues but they have mental issues so let's just say it's hard not to feel deprived at times...) and I have felt like the boy in the book so many times. Kevan captures that unmistakable feeling of the presence of a loved one, gone but not gone from your heart. I have woken up so many times with the sensation of my cat next to me but it was a dream. Sigh. Simply told and illustrated, it's a book about love and loss and loving again. I'm getting multiple copies to give to friends, young and old. See for yourself the opening pages.
These are the ghosts in my life. What about you?
