The Cat Who Chose to Dream

Reviewed by

With a foreword by actor George Takei, this poignant portrait of a Japanese American family’s pet cat challenges our willingness to objectively remember the horrors that changed us, as well as our capacity for empathy, optimism, and forgiveness. Surrealist, colored-pencil artwork by Jimmy Tsutomu Mirikani, an American citizen who was interned in the US during WWII, evokes Japanese tradition, adding texture to the contemplative story. Ages five and up.
