"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

The story is very well written by Jonathan Hall, a paramedic who was helping in the cleanup of a tornado in Brimfield MA. A tiny kitten, later named Toto for obvious reasons, was found high in a tree. The kitten was cared for by a Boston animal rescue organization - The Animal Rescue League.
The story is a very cute one, good for young kids up to early teens. It has a very positive feel. The very happy part is that Mr Hall ends up adopting Tot and bringing him back to Brimfield to live. As Toto says "No more tornados for me".
My only disappointment is that I'm not a big fan of the illustrator's style. I prefer either more realistic pictures, photos or a watercolor painting style similar to Eloise Wilkin's. However, that is simply my opinion and I'll bet there are plenty of readers who will enjoy Carol Ruzicka's illustrations.
I have purchased two copies now for my grandkids. I normally buy all my books from Amazon, but this time I'm going to make the recommendation that you buy directly from the author's site.

Mr Hall's website is [...] Buying it here also gives you the option of having the author AND Toto autograph and inscribe the book!
"TOTO" was read to my grandaughter (age 5) by her mother. The loss of home & the cat "TOTO" brought her to tears...so sad for the family. Those feelings were followed by joy to the end when they were altogether again. I thought it would be a great true story about " Life " and it is! We cannot control events that occur but we can count-our-blessings! I thought it was an excellent story of love. (Nana S.)
