Mango (the long-haired ginger cat) Learns She Is Adopted by Grandma Krazy is a children’s picture book about a cat named Mango who feels a little bit different from the rest of her family and struggles to find her footing at first. What is revealed when she starts asking questions is an inspiring tale of adoption and love in all its many forms along with a narrative so authentic and effective that it might just cause a tear or two to slide down your face. And with the powerful narrative come the energetic illustrations by Lauren Garcia. The way she captures the expressions is partly what makes the book such an emotional experience; specifically the eyes appear to hold a very real life force within them.
Grandma Krazy’s Mango (the long-haired ginger cat) Learns She Is Adopted is such a heartfelt story that it pulls at everything inside you. Whether you are an animal lover or not, it speaks to you. While the adoption topic might not be something that everyone is familiar with or has personal experience with, it can still hit a large relatable audience because there are times in everyone’s lives when they can feel a bit different from the herd, or on the outside looking in, even when there are blood ties. It is my belief that Grandma Krazy has created a truly inspirational tool to possibly open that line of communication about adoption, or as perhaps a means to solidify an original conversation about adoption.
