Before the stray cat entered their lives, Julia Romp's nine-year-old son George seemed like a lost boy. Autistic and reclusive, he rarely smiled and seemed to avoid interactions even with his family. When little Ben arrived; everything changed. George welcomed him, talking to him and eventually spinning intricate stories. Steadily, the sea-change touched every facet of the young boy's life: at home, at school, everywhere. Then the unthinkable happened: The tiny black-and-white cat disappeared. This Christmas story about the return of one child's confidante and how it changed him makes an unforgettable holiday story. Buyer's pick.
