Homer's Odyssey

Homer's Odyssey - Gwen Cooper Regular readers of my reviews know that I love animal stories. Christian the lion, Dewey the library cat ... and now, Homer.Gwen Cooper writes movingly about her adoption of a blind kitten whom she names after the Greek poet. Little Homer proves to be far more adaptable and "able" than Cooper anticipates, and teaches her many lessons about bravery, trust and love.I shed tears several times during the book ... not because of sadness but because of joy and gratitude. Cooper writes frankly about the challenges and joys of living with a blind cat who, never having had vision, does not recognize any limitations in his life.Pet lovers are sure to enjoy this moving story about a very special kitten. Domestic royalties for the book will be donated to various animal rescue agencies by Cooper, so your expenditure will also go to a good cause.(Review based on unedited advance proof.)
