As a adult, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this very "special" book "Meet Twinkle Toes" by Faye M. Parsons. Not only is it beautifully illustrated but the story is "in the moment" in that, it deals with "being different."

The publicity material for this book informs us that the story about a unique cat in search of friendship and love, and states:

"Twinkle Toes is a naive and timid cat with a multicolored coat and large stature that searches for companions and a place to call home. Through the kindness of others, Twinkle Toes learns to embrace his differences."

Looking back, I can well remember how it was to get on the bus in a rural county in Maine in the early fifties and have the other students accost us "Stevens'" kids because we were the minority on that bus -- we weren't "French". So, that being said, I dearly love to read any book that deals with the issue of "just being different".

This author, "Faye M. Parsons" is a teacher, and she has used her background in education to do a wonderful job in depicting how the world is changing.

Will I recommend this book to others? ABSOLUTELY!

Martha Stevens-David.
