A beautifully illustrated book about a real person. When Alan Rabinowitz grew up he had an awful stutter but he found that he could speak with animals without stuttering. Alan grew up to become a well known cat conservationist- he learned to speak for those who had no voice. This is a great story for anyone but especially those who struggle with speech disfluency.

I think someone who likes jaguars should read this. I don't like jaguars that's why. - Sophia, age 8

A beautiful true story about a boy who grows up to become a big cat expert. Also, I had never seen stuttering in children's books. Two thumbs up!
