The Healer Cat

The Healer Cat is a vintage children’s book by Tuula Pere. The book introduces Celesse, a friendly domestic cat known on her farm and neighborhood for her healing abilities. She is frequently summoned by her peers to aid themselves or family members with all sorts of ailments, which she can quickly cure with her presence and soothing purring. One snowy evening, a hare who lives deep in the forest enters her warm kitchen and begs her to leave with her to meet her baby boy, who is running a very high fever. Celesse must decide if she wants to remain in the safety of her home, next to a fireplace, or face the snowstorm. In the end, the duo leaves for the burrow. Unbeknownst to them, though, they will have to face danger to find it.

This heartwarming book is quite wholesome and perfect for a winter read. Children are sure to enjoy the journey of Celesse and her hare companion through a mysterious forest. Moreover, the antique-style illustrations done by artist Klaudia Bezak are a unique and beautiful sight. They will undoubtedly remind parents of their childhood books as they read through this exciting adventure to the hare’s home. Although its climax might be somewhat confusing for young readers, it is an exercise in interpretation, leaving readers to find a moral to the story after a seemingly open end. This fantastic story successfully spreads the message of encouragement for doing good deeds.

The Healer Cat is a children’s book that teaches about kindness, helping one another, and doing good deeds without expecting anything in return. There is also the message about standing up to your fears and facing the things that scare you the most. This thought-provoking story will engage children and give them many things to talk about and learn from.
