Tabitha Fink is one awesome, amazing, wonderful cat! Why? Because while she’s cute and adorable like other cats, Tabitha Fink also has just one eye – and she thinks that’s just perfect for her. The star of this book begins her story by telling us that “I am Tabitha Fink/quite simply a cat” and then she proceeds to tell us what she is not. She is NOT a car, a star, a truck or several other things. Nope, she is “…Tabitha Fink, a cat with one eye.” Tabitha Fink may only have one eye, but that certainly doesn’t slow her down. She might climb up the table to try and get the scrumptious blueberry pie that’s just sitting there or have a blast playing with a ball of yarn. Nope, having one eye is not a problem for Tabitha Fink because “...it makes me special with each single blink.” Told in the first person by Tabitha Fink, the story is written in a simple rhyme style that flows perfectly: I am Tabitha Fink, somewhat hard to ignore/with only one eye where some others have more. I’ve still got one tail and four paws on the floor./I’m still Tabitha Fink as I’ve mentioned before. The message of accepting who you are and embracing your differences, no matter what they are, comes across loud and clear without being preachy in Tabitha Fink. The illustrations are simple, bright and cheerful and when combined with the brief text, come together to make the perfect book for the preschooler (ages 2 to 5). I’ve no doubt that both parent and child will be smiling ear-to-ear after reading Tabitha Fink. Quill says: A not-to-be missed story for the preschooler in your life – uplifting, enjoyable, and just plain fun. I loved every word!

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Tabitha Fink: The Cat With One Eye by Rick Felty is about Tabitha Fink, the cat who introduces herself to readers using clever rhymes and interesting words that will help to improve their vocabulary. Tabitha Fink is happy the way she is, not being a star or a bear with a hat. She is not a doll or a blueberry pie, but just Tabitha Fink and she is happy being herself. The book conveys a beautiful message of accepting oneself and realizing that we all are great as we are, just like one-eyed Tabitha Fink. I found the book adorable and the message is very uplifting. It teaches children to be happy with their own selves instead of trying to be like someone else. The illustrations are charming and lively and help children learn a lot of new things. Tabitha is a lovable one-eyed cat and she teaches readers to feel great with what they have. It's a good bedtime storybook and parents and grandparents can read it out to their kids and grandkids. The book can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The message conveyed through the book is very healthy and empowering and teaches young readers to celebrate their uniqueness and individuality. Books that convey good messages to kids help them understand the message or the concept better when narrated with the help of a story. Kids will love this book and they will also like the voice of Tabitha Fink.
