Smokey
Richard J. Jacquot Jr.



"Smokey" is a wonderful tale about a cat named Smokey, but this one has a twist, as Smokey was a real cat. Smokey's story is one of love, laughter, death, sadness and tolerance of others who are different than yourself. A great book for children to learn life's lessons and a wonderful reminder for adults. A well written book and a very fast read at 212 pages. Not only is the book well written, proceeds from the sale of this book go to help animals. It is a win win all around."

"I finished reading the book this morning. It's a great read!! Can't wait till the next one."
Jackie J., North Carolina

"This book hit me hard. I lost my sweet kitty Asia a few weeks ago. It is a great read. It made me laugh and cry, and in the end, I actually felt better about my cat. I hope there is a sequel, the characters are so funny and adorable."
Jeannie B., New Mexico

"I received my copy of Smokey today. I read it in about four hours. Every page shows how much you loved and cared about him and all animals. He must have been a special guy. I’m looking forward to my daughter reading it next weekend. I’m sure she will be moved by it as well."

"I wanted to read this book because I knew it was about cats, and I like cats. There was a lot of emotion and friendship in the story line. Parts of it made me cry. It is well written and every chapter made me anxious to read the next one to see what happened. I am an adult, but this story would be suitable for kids in the 5th – 6th grade age range and up. I really liked it!"
Mary J., North Carolina

"It only took me two days to read the book. I couldn't put it down! They should make a children's movie from it. The characters are really fun and they have quite the adventure."
Barbara Q., West Virginia

"I really enjoyed your book ... I look forward to sharing it with my grandson when he is older ... awesome job!"
Terry K., Florida

"I read the book twice to fit it all together. Lots of little things in one chapter that lead into the following chapters. Very clever and well written!"
Michelle D., Florida

"Smokey, an enchanting tale based on the life of a real cat that used to roam the North Carolina mountains. Captivating so much that I did not want to put the book down. Wonderfully written to where I envisioned the characters and surroundings in my mind. It activated my imagination. I would love to see it put to a movie & look eagerly forward to the next adventures. I highly recommend this to anyone that wants their heart & mind stimulated. I slept soundly through the night after reading; that is quite a feat for me!"
Doris K., North Carolina


"I bought this book for my daughter, she loved it! Now her friends are reading it. Great story!"
