Missing Jack by Rebecca Elliott
Published by Lion Hudson Publications
This book was an unexpected delight and has a fan in our household in my one year old son who delighted in meowing at the book’s character Jack - who just so happens to be the best cat ever.
Jack is a very talented cat. Jack is friendly and never scratches his owner Toby, Jack also thinks he is a lion as he pounces and leaps. However, Jack soon gets old and can’t do as much as he once did. Sadly, Jack died and Toby missed his beloved friend dearly. Before long Toby gets a new cat - Humphrey - who is nothing like Jack, but in the end, turns out to be alright after all.
Missing Jack is a beautiful story about overcoming loss and moving on and continuing to live life. A hopeful story of what could be if you only give it a chance.
