Reviews

This book made me cry tears of sympathy, and joy. You and I are this boy; You and I are this jaguar.
--Sherman Alexie, National Book Award winner for The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time IndianThis true story of a promise kept is for everyone - no matter what age - to read and share.
--Sy Montgomery, Sibert Medal Winner for Kakapo Rescue: Saving the World's Strangest ParrotA beautiful book that will inspire stutterers to succeed and make a positive difference in the world.
--Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation* In his first book for children, conservationist and adult author Rabinowitz frames his lifelong struggle with stuttering against his equally long-held love of animals...Iit's a candid and deeply resonant account of a hard-fought battle against societal stigma, and an embrace of one's true talent and calling.
--Publisher's Weekly,
starred review* Moving and sweetly resonant.
--Kirkus, starred reviewThe emotional resonance of the text, urgency of the issues discussed, and breathtakingly breautiful illustrations make this book a winner...A testament to the fierce beauty of jaguars and the human spirit.
--School Library Journal Readers will feel privileged to be part of this magical experience.
--Booklist

Kids with speech issues, and those who bond with animals more easily than with fellow humans, will especially relate to Rabinowitz's emotionally honest narrative.
