Signed Copies of Yama Mimi Available

Yama Mimi is the story of an adopted skinny black Siamese cat who ponders his purpose and place in the world. He doesn’t fit in (and probably never will). In Japanese his name means “Mountain Ears.” His adventures with the cats, birds and bees of his neighborhood center around him finding his life’s meaning. He begs his mom to go to Siamese School to learn his calling. Instead, he is a social outcast among the purebreds at school and discovers he isn’t talented at any of the things a “true Siamese” should be able to do well. Nevertheless, he wins over the hearts of those around him through his openness, kindness and courageous spirit. He comes to understand that he isn’t worthy because of what he accomplishes, how he fits into the world, or how he is defined.
