This is the heart-warming true story of a little boy and the cat that changed his life. Ten year old George was severely autistic; quiet and withdrawn, he appeared lost in his own world most of the time. Then one day a small, black-and-white stray cat appeared at the bottom of her garden and George's face lit up.

A lovely read. I like the simplicity of the writing, relaying the relationship between an austisic boy, George, and his mum, Julia and how a little stray cat changes their lives. Have the tissues at the ready. Read full review
