"Jekyll Says ..." (Good Deeds Cats Do That You Should, Too ) is a series of amusing and educational poems told from the perspective of a wise and warm-hearted cat named Jekyll. Each perky poem epitomizes something about Jekyll's vivacious personality and the lessons he teaches are designed to encourage people of all ages to be healthy and happy. The poems in "Jekyll Says ..." consist of rhyming couplets with equal syllables. They have a merry meter and rip-roaring rhythms which make them lively and lyrical and fun to read (or sometimes sing ) aloud. More than anything, "Jekyll Says ..." is perfect for Cat Lovers of all ages, as well as anyone who has ever known and/or loved a companion animal. This book is also appealing to those who desire a break from their busy lives and who want to read something that is joyous and uplifting. Profits from the sale of this book benefit animal adoption, care, liberation, rescue, and welfare organizations.
About the Author
D.C. Blackbird is an American poet, songwriter, and author, along with being a world-renowned adventurer and traveler to places that stamp passports with bark and tree sap. In case you never heard, D.C. is one of the world's greatest feather & leaf jugglers and has performed this great skill before Royal Courts throughout Europe as well as in diners throughout New Jersey between snacking on corn muffins. You probably know that D.C. is the best-selling author of titles that include: Jekyll Says ... (Good Deeds Cats Do, That You Should, To!), Jekyll Says More! (Lessons & Trends For Felines & Friends), and Dreaming of Kittyland, but there is more to this remarkable human being, so please don't just judge D.C. by the pretty words. Blackbird is one of "those vegans" you have probably heard about and maybe you have even seen hanging out at health stores ordering wheat grass juice. But don't worry! D.C. does not glow in the dark (except after drinking grape juice), but veganism IS contagious. You have been warned. Oh, yeah, and D.C. is also one of those animal-loving folks that cares for dogs, cats, birds, and runs into traffic with a cardboard box to save turtles in the middle of the road. If you ask nicely, D.C. Blackbird may be available to come to your home for Roasted Tempeh and Marzipan treats. But the main stuff you are interested in is that D.C. is dedicated to telling stories about awesome experiences and adventures with cool earthlings around the world, and teaching readers to be compassionate to all living beings, while promoting and encouraging goodness, civic virtues, high principles, and values.
