Land of Lilybug : Where Dreams Come True
Land of Lilybug: Where Dreams Come True is a book of dreams. These are the shared imaginings of a grandfather and a granddaughter, as they trek across the globe living, loving and learning about fifteen small, highly-endangered cats surviving in the wild. Although these appear as fictional accounts, they are as real as 'factual' can get, embellished for the book, but full of wandering facts and a deep love of cats. Consider the accountings as true life adventures of two people in search of the spectacular. These animal tales will always be remembered as the days and nights of the cat paws, giving us a moment to peruse special friends who live in far off lands of intrigue and great beauty. You won't find any Felidae, the scientific name of the biological family whose most familiar member is the domestic cat. These highly evolved predators are as beautiful as they are fascinating - did you know, for example, that almost all members of this carnivorous family share an inborn glitch that prevents them from tasting sweetness? So these fifteen short stories deal with some of nature's deepest secrets, specializing on little-known cat species which wander the earth in search of prey and peace. None of these are your common housecat nor are any the well-known big cats. These felines are somewhere in between - all wild, all lesser knowns, all gorgeous and none answer to "Here, kitty, kitty, kitty!" The purpose of this book is purely edutainment, combining international education with reading entertainment: certainly about cats; but also including people geography, physical geography and cherished cultures from all over the world. It is based upon actual human experiences, modified for inclusion in the book and presented in conversations between a grandfather and his beloved granddaughter.
