What is this book about?

The One and Only Ivan meets Pax in this illustrated book about one stray cat’s search for shelter, acceptance, and courage.

If you’re reading this, I don’t trust you.
You see, humans are sometimes kind to me. One human always saved me bakery treats.
But just as often, humans are not kind to those like me—stray cats. Many people think I’m dirty (which I am not). Some think I’m a nuisance.
My mother taught me to be cautious, thoughtful, and kind. I am good at those things.
But she also taught me to be brave. And that’s something I needed a lot of help with.
If you’re gentle and you don’t move too quickly, I’ll tell you about it. How I met Danielle. How three sparrows showed me the way. How Chester changed my life. And how I became brave.
Are you ready? Trust me, this is an exciting adventure, but isn’t too scary!
