VERIFIED REVIEW-
by CHRISTINE BURNS- AMAZON UK
“This allegorical tale for children is all about self realisation, acceptance and transition. It’s a story about how a group of anthropomorphised dogs respond when one realises that, deep inside, he’s really a cat, and always has been. It’s billed as a children’s book — reading age 812 — but, on a fundamental level I think that many adults really need to read this and reflect on the lessons which the allegory provides. The lessons particularly apply to understanding the path to self understanding and acceptance that trans people go through, long before finding the courage to explain their anguish to the significant others in their life. How the other dogs react to this is an idealisation of how true friends and family should possibly process the gender transition of someone close to them — someone whom they hitherto never realised to be a cat trapped in a dog’s body.”
