This endearing tale is a unique work of historical fiction for cat lovers. It follows the life of a farm boy named Isao, who befriends a remarkable cat. Together, they experience Japan’s transformative Meiji period. The journey begins in the peaceful farmlands at the foot of sacred Mount Fuji, and then takes the reader through upheavals of war and cultural change. Isao comes to know great adventure, great love and great loss. Like Japan, he is transformed, his life taking a new turn with each of the nine incarnations of his dear companion. Illustrations in the style of Japanese woodblock prints and paintings accent the story throughout. Proceeds from sales will be donated to the Humane Society to support cat rescue and neutering programs.
