A great read for kids and cats of all ages: -)
As a girl, TJ longed for a cat but allergies got in the way. In spite of it, the universe conspired for a cat to find her through a series of dreams and friendly guides. In 72 full-color illustrations, this graphic memoir tells the story of a nomadic artist and her relationship with the adorable cat “Chicken” who confirms their fate by immediately addressing TJ with “me-you” instead of “meow.” Staying by TJ’s side for 17 years spanning four cities (San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Pittsburgh), Chicken’s tale ranges from funny to emotional, sweet to silly, thoughtful to mystical.
Chicken is a soulful expression of the love between cat and person as it collides with the powerful tide of family, friends, loss, and the invisible forces that connect us.
