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.

Patti Tingen

What a sweet book! With bright, colorful illustrations and a fun, rhyming text, Tabitha Fink shows kids and adults alike that it’s okay to be different. This sweet little cat is wholly content just being herself. And the message comes through that we should all feel comfortable in our own skin – or fur as the case may be. None of us are perfect and Tabitha Fink gives us permission not to be. The best part is that Tabitha Fink is a real cat! -Patti Tingen, author, "A Cat Named Mouse"

Tabitha Fink is a cat - a very special cat at that because Tabitha the cat has one eye. In this simply written story we fall in love with Tabitha Fink - the cat with one eye who shows us that no matter how different you may look, everyone is special in their own way. This story not only gives the young child an important message about inclusion, but it is also simply told with a fun rhyme scheme and has bold, colorful illustrations that will surely keep your little one enticed the whole way through. The reason I love this book so much though is because it is so simply written so that little ones can understand the story and so young readers can successfully read it through. Telling a big story with few words is hard to do and Felty does this swimmingly. You can also get the audio book for free from the website at I can't wait to see what Tabitha the cat has in store when she travels to space in the next book! I will most definitely be sharing this with everyone I know!
