"Jewel Kats and Claudia Marie Lenart accomplished the unimaginable by telling an important and moving story in just a few mesmerizing pages. Jewel introduces the reader to 'Cancer' and the treatment that saves Jenny's life while she comforts the dog she loves. Claudia's pictures are magnificent in their texture, color, detail, and postural simplicity of the characters. I had to read it twice—I could not see through my tears the first time."
--Laurie Zelinger, Ph.D., ABPP, RPT-S, Board Certified Psychologist and author of the Please Explain series
"Jewel Kats tackles cancer in a heartwarming story of friendship and loss. Cancer has no boundaries, as Kats points out, when a young girl and her dog both fight this deadly illness. This book is beneficial for children who are embarking upon a cancer journey, either their own or alongside a family member."
--V.S. Grenier, Award-winning Author & Mom's Choice Honoree
"The C word—not all kids know what it means, but they see the reaction in all who hear the word. In this beautifully illustrated book, author Jewel Kats strives to talk about both symptoms and feelings attached to experiencing cancer. Some of us experience cancer inside ourselves and some of us experience it by watching the impact on those we care about."
