FROM BACK JACKET:
"Follow Jimmy the Cat's inspirational journey as he uses his imagination to empower himself and survive trauma while in a prison camp for Japanese Americans during World War II.
Before feelings of hopelessness can overcome him, Jimmy the Cat turns to his imagination and creativity to transport him to places where he no longer feels frightened and restrained -- instead feeling self-empowered and free. He reminds himself that "Others may have the power to shackle my body, but I always hold the power to free my mind."
Featuring Jimmy Tsutomu Mirikitani's drawings, The Cat who Chose to Dream brings hope and inspiration to anyone who has experienced difficult situations beyond their control."
