Seymour is a timid cat living with Pepper, his sister who longs to fly like the birds. He must find courage and how to be true to his own nature. This fantasy follows the cats through dangers with raccoons and a meeting with a mysterious teacher. The teacher gives them cat-sized garments once worn by warriors and now used by some martial artists. Ultimately, these felines in hakamas learn to fly, but more important, they learn about themselves. Full color pictures enliven the story. Appropriate for ages 10-adult.
