Dizzy Lizzy: A True Rescue Cat Tale by Kat E. Erikson is the story of Lizzy, a precocious little kitten who is the runt of a large litter. Forced to fight for food against her larger siblings - and always last to eat when it happens - Lizzy learns early that throwing a tizzy doesn't do enough to get her what she needs. When the demolition of their home tears their shelter to shreds, Lizzy and her siblings are collected by the workers, who separate them from their mother. The kittens are all well looked after by the foster carer who takes them in, and one by one the kittens are adopted. As Lizzy comes to terms with the prospect of yet another home, she also gets a companion and the one thing every foster baby needs: a new, loving mama.

Dizzy Lizzy by Kat E. Erikson is a wonderful book for children and parents alike. The underlying themes deal with persistence, survival, loss, family, and love. As a foster carer to children of the human type (and a kitten taken in under similar circumstances who is now, six years later, a member of our family), I absolutely appreciate when books are written in a way that all children can enjoy. Erikson is skilled in lyrical prose and creates a heartwarming tale that is timeless and enlightening. I look forward to seeing the illustrations that accompany this gem, and will have fun reading about Dizzy Lizzy over and over again.
