When Fraser Met Billy by Louise Booth. Good books about kitties aren't easy to come by. I think I've read most of them. And it's true, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince! This one qualifies as a "prince". The author and her family live on the Balmoral Estate in Scotland (yep, the same Balmoral where the Queen and her Corgis hang out). Louise Booth's book is about her autistic son and his cat, Billy. I seem to be attracted to authors in the UK. Once again, a kitty plays the starring roll in the life of a little boy with autism. This book took me one night to read. It's easy, grabs your attention and has no sad parts - all pluses! Read about how Fraser makes amazing progress, due, not only to his parents and teachers, but also to his grey and white cat, Billy. Billy truly seems to have the gift of ESP where Fraser is concerned. Let no one discount the healing power of kitties! Even doubters might have a change of heart after reading this book. Louise Booth is no "writer", that is she doesn't take you there like another favourite author, Denis O'Conor, in fact she is a straightforward, basic sort of writer. But she tells the story of her son and Billy in such a way that the book is hard to put down. You can find this book at a used book store, on Amazon, probably on Kindle. or in the library. For a quick, pleasurable read with a wonderful kitty as the star, this book is spot on. ~Christina
