This is the original, the book that introduced readers to the wonderful Tabitha Fink. She’s a cat that is always up for exploration, making friends and learning new things. She also has a lot of valuable lessons to teach.
The book that started it all is meant for very early readers, with simple text and large images. It is a great introduction to the Tabitha character and has a powerful self-empowering message for all kids. In the book, readers learn that Tabitha Fink has only one eye but that she embraces who she is and enjoys being the one and only Tabitha Fink.
Tabitha Fink The Cat With One Eye won both first place at the Beverly Hills Book Awards and third place in the Feathered Quill Book Awards and has received many great reviews.
Tabitha Fink: The Cat With One Eye – Review by Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite
“Tabitha Fink: The Cat With One Eye by Rick Felty is about Tabitha Fink, the cat who introduces herself to readers using clever rhymes and interesting words that will help to improve their vocabulary. Tabitha Fink is happy the way she is, not being a star or a bear with a hat. She is not a doll or a blueberry pie, but just Tabitha Fink and she is happy being herself. The book conveys a beautiful message of accepting oneself and realizing that we all are great as we are, just like one-eyed Tabitha Fink.
I found the book adorable and the message is very up-lifting.
