Tabitha Fink, the amazing one-eyed cat, is inviting readers to another story where they will learn and laugh at the same time. In his latest adventure, he doesn’t travel to far away places like he did in his last book, but instead helps a playful mouse overcome his fear of the dark.
When the story begins, our heroine is outside her home, introducing the readers to herself and her home. He then introduces his good friend, Bartholomew Blink, a mouse with a big smile. Tabitha and Bartholomew are “best friends” who love to play hide and seek all day. They play inside the house, around the kitchen table and everywhere there is a good hiding place, until they get tired. Then it’s nap time! Get some rest and then it’s time to play again, all day. Until … the light of day fades.
As the sun sets, Bartholomew Blink confides in his friend:
“I get a little scared”
admits with a fright.
“Things are just not the same
when day turns to night. “
Bartholomew Blink then tells his friend about all the scary things that come out at night. The little mouse is convinced that there is a big, furry monster in the closet, a witch under the bed … and … and … oh, don’t even ask him what’s at the bottom of the stairs!
Tabitha Fink listens carefully to her friend and luckily this is one smart cat! She tells Bartolomé:
“You imagine the worst
And you’re sure it’s true
I’ve been there myself.
I felt like you. “
Tabitha Fink’s solution to becoming a “Night Ninja” and what she does as a ninja is sure to delight children. Her actions as a ninja are fun, and author Felty deserves credit for finding such a clever and unique solution to Bartholomew’s problem.
