              About the author: Jaylen Grace is a freelancd  writer, author and international Life  Coach. She particularly enjoys coaching children. Whilst living in Athens, Jaylen opened the first ‘Life  Coach Centre’ of its kind. For the past eight years Jaylen has been based in London. She still teaches but devotes most of her time to writing. 

From the jacket flap: Hello. The name's Omzak, Captain Omzak. There are two things you should know about me:
                            1. I'm THE best warrior on Planet Catopia and in the 
                                whole universe.
                            2. I hate germs.

A while back I broke a peace treaty by getting in to a fight with a stinking, scumbag ape-like Varian who had dared to set foot in our territory. Now, I'm being punished. They're sending me to England, Planet Earth. My mission? To blend in with those backward Earth cats, find myself a human so I can be their pet, and learn to be humble. And I just bet it's going to be filthy down there.


What I thought: This is a very well written  book with a unique story line about a warrior cat who is sent to  Earth (as a punishment) to live as a regular cat. Omzak is a brilliantly created character, and the supporting characters are fun.  The important moral values of the story encompass: love, friendship, not judging other, courage, and the importance of believing in oneself. Omzak made me laugh as he got himself in and out of situations, some involving too many germs (his phobia). The author is an International Life  Coach, who particularly enjoys working  with children. This book reflects her passion for coaching  and guiding children through life. Omzak is a definite must read for children  and adults alike. It's a great  adventure  book.

There are several incredible black & white illustrations, and some black & white with color illustrations that really enhance the reading experience.

  1. This sounds interesting. Being a cat lover, I'm game for anything with a cat theme. An out-of-place cat in good ole' England is intriguing.

    The illustrations are awesome. The muscles and other definitions in the bodies are amazingly lifelike. Read the Amazon freebie and liked what I read. I would love to have this cat as a pet. I have always wondered what my cats are thinking, why they do some of what they do, and to talk to them and have them understand me, especially when I say "NO!"

    Diane, you find the most amazing books to review. How do you do that? I've been reviewing books for almost eight years and do not come across the number of amazing books as you do. (percentage-wise) You get almost 100% amazing.

  2. I'm glad you think this book is amazing because it is. I come across books like this, and previous books I've reviewed. through people I've worked with in the publishing/editing industry or people who know people that I've worked with.

    You would like Omzak, especially when he is sent to England, Earth as a punishment and has to learn to speak boring "Meow" again. Too funny.

    The author is a really nice lady, to

    1. continuing . . .

      talk with and read of her life's journey.
