Meet Billi, an Asian leopard cat with an aging but as yet untamed soul who embarks on a quest to learn more about the "two-foots" by asking their animal companions what they think of humans. Erik Steele masterfully narrates this fable by the author of WHEN ELEPHANTS WEEP, giving unique voices to a cheetah, a water buffalo deeply saddened because people label her "unclean," a mongoose with a sobering tale of human prejudice and violence, and young elephants screaming with nightmares. Despite the harrowing tales of the lack of understanding humans have for animals, Steele's voice softens as Billi finally finds a mutually satisfying relationship with a young girl and becomes the first cat to choose domestication.
