HENRY'S WORLD - THREE PAWS, NINE LIVES
This is a fantastic book for any pet lover! 'Henry's World' comes complete with a music CD and a bookmark. This is the true story of Henry, a three legged cat that turned tragedy into triumph. It is such a feel-good book that it's a perfect gift for anyone that has recently lost a pet. It is also a wonderful book for avowed 'dog people' - even those with an extreme dislike of cats! See all the awards that have been given to this book below. Best of all, 100% of all proceeds from Henry's books sold on this website are donated to dog rescue organizations.
When Henry was rescued, his left front leg dangled uselessly from his shoulder. Only an emergency amputation could save his life. Since, Henry was an outdoor mountain cat, he 'belonged' to no one; this should have been the end of the story. Instead, he moved to La Jolla, California and became an inspiration to many.
Henry's World tells of an intrepid tripod cat who wins the hearts of two self-avowed 'dog people'. Inspired by Henry's resilience and zest for life, they shared his adventures via email with a few friends. In eight months Henry's email folder swelled to 2000 letters from around the world. Henry's new email paw pals teach him much and many confide in him their own setbacks and tales of survival.
Henry's World is a story not just about a cat but about all of us - about trust, community, courage, and resiliency. It is about prejudice and overcoming it, coming to love what we thought we hated, enemies becoming friends and challenges becoming learning experiences. Henry's stories seek to tell you through the eyes of an innocent creature, what our world looks like to an outsider. He is able to see the absurdity in things we take for granted. Henry's World is about how we survive our wounds, about transforming tragedy into possibility. Foremost, it is about life as a new adventure.
