I Am Tama, Lucky Cat

A Japanese Legend
  • By Yoshiko Jaeggi
  • By Wendy Henrichs
$14.29
($16.95)
Under the shadow of the white-capped mountains of Japan, a kind and gentle monk takes in a white cat with unusual markings and names him Tama, Lucky Cat.
Tama watches as his new master teaches Buddha's ways to poor farmers, caring for their welfare while ignoring his own empty stomach. Tama truly earns his nickname--"Lucky Cat, ' when during a powerful thunderstorm, he sees a towering warlord on a white horse. The cat beckons the warrior forward just as a large branch crashes to the ground and lands right where the warlord had previously stood. In gratitude to Tama, the warlord lavishes gifts on the monk's poor temple.
In a marriage of graceful text based on one of the legends of Maneki Neko--"beckoning cat," in early Edo-period Japan--and breathtaking watercolor illustrations, debut author Wendy Henrichs and award-winning illustrator Yoshiko Jaeggi offer a beautiful story of friendship, generosity, and kindness.
