About the Author
Elisabeth is a freelance writer and poet, spending much of her free time working in animal rescue and flying transports for Pilots N Paws. She has seen how the lost and thrown-away pets that no one wanted thrive when they were placed in loving homes. Her book is based on her own cat, Frankie, who she adopted from a high-kill shelter at eleven years of age and thirty-five pounds.
This is her first book. Additional Frankie books, her own animals dealing with real-people problems, are currently in the works.
Her hope is that children can associate, through her animals, how much words can hurt. How we are all different, and it is all right!
Elisabeth and her husband, Paul, live in Prattville, Alabama, with three other rescue cats and four rescue dogs. They have five children and five grandchildren."

We Are All Different
And We Are All Right

Life was always tough for me Without a friend by my side, I couldn't face all the jokes, There was no place I could hide!
You see, I'm a very big boy, Seems every week I would gain, Then they laughed even more And I ate to ease the pain.
I tried hard to exercise I even tried eating a small meal! I couldn't change who I was, I didn't know how to feel!
Then, I saw her crouched in a corner, A very freckled little girl, She was hiding her face As she whispered "My name is Pearl".
The other kids taunted
"Hey, can I connect all your dots?" She tried hiding them and bleaching them, She even tried scrubbing off her spots!
We had something in common In our club made of two. We looked out for each other And a strong friendship grew.
We built one another up "You look great" we would say! One day, a tiny girl approached us, "Do you mind if I play?"
I had seen her before She was always quite mean, She was known for her fierceness. There were fights I had seen!
