This story for adopted and foster children describes the adventures of Zachary the kitten, who is taken from his mother's house when his mother is unable to take care of him. The book follows Zachary as he first goes into foster care and then is adopted by a family of geese. Zachary experiences the expected and true-to-life feelings of shame, anger, rebelliousness, and hurt, and his adoptive parents struggle with their own feelings during Zachary's tougher times, until Zachary finally finds a place he can call home. The poignant story is brought to life by Margo Lemieux's detailed, evocative drawings.
