Mary was a water creature
with webbed feet and tail;
her kind glided through water
as naturally as whales.

Her brother swam strong
while her sister liked to splash
Mary liked neither;
she certainly wasn’t rash.

Her tribe would hold parties
in the ocean so vast;
Mary always stayed put;
Bereft, alone and outcast.

She remembered when they were little
Running up and down the beach;
Life was the cat’s meow
to use a figure of speech

Her mother taught them to wade
and paddle just like so
then dive into the deep
and catch the fish below.

Mary had a secret
that she never said out loud;
she kept it to herself;
this thought she was not proud.

Mary was afraid of drowning
she didn’t want to chance
breathing in the water
and doing a drowning-cat dance.

So she sat on the shore
while others went out to play
until she heard a desperate mew
coming from the water one day.

A cat had fallen
from an overhanging tree;
there were no other creatures around
she would have to go into the sea.

Mary gathered her courage
and paddled out to help;
She reached the kitten in time;
As she grabbed it, it yelped.

As she pulled the small one to safety
she saw a crowd had gathered
cheering her on;
showing how much she had mattered.

Back on the shore
her siblings praised her actions
she was their quick-thinking sister
Mary grinned with satisfaction.

After that day
Mary realized she swam well;
She stopped fearing the ocean;
And now has sea stories to tell.


Fear can hold back

some truly great moments;

have the courage to try

so you don’t regret postponements.


Creature Cat Tales is a delightful book of poetry geared more toward younger readers, but adults can enjoy it too. 
Each poem is about a different creature cat, and at the end, there is a life lesson to be learned. From were-cat to Franken-cat, spider cat and vampire cat, and even Wendigo-cat(!), there's sure to be a creature cat to appeal to everyone. And each lesson that goes along with the poem is important and easy to apply to everyday life.
The illustrations are super fun, and I just loved everything about this. I'm a sucker for cats, and a sucker for supernatural/paranormal creatures, so this was perfect for me. I enjoyed it so much.
5 stars!
