Ash-ting, the little grey kitten who can talk to Tara, is here to help her. But Tara needs more help than Ash-ting can offer when her unpleasant 'Uncle' Steve comes to stay. That is when her guardian angel steps in to protect her and her brother and sister. When her sister nearly drowns Tara learns about healing angels and how she can call on them. The angels also teach Tara that she has to take responsibility for her actions.Tara and her kitten Ash-ting discover that the huge old oak tree behind their home is to be cut down to make way for a road. They meet fairies, elves, pixies and imps and working together they find a way to save the tree.The story is written in a way that will help those children who have been abused recognise what has happened to them. It offers practical help and also introduces them to angels with the inspiration and assistance they can offer.The book will appeal to children aged 5-9 as well as parents and teachers. I absolutely adored "The Magical Adventures of Tara and the Talking Kitten", and "Tara and the Talking Kitten meet Angels and Fairies". Diana Cooper, with illustrator Kate Shannon, has done an amazing job! I read them aloud to my daughter and these books clearly helped her to understand the many ways that angels (and fairies!) can help us in our lives! She loved the characters including the magical talking kitten, the angels, the fairies and of course - Tara! by Adrienne Dumas, editor and creator of "The Faeries and Angels" Magazine
