The White Cat and the Monk
by Jo Ellen Bogart
illustration by Sydney Smith
In a retelling of an old tale, Bogart describes the relationship between the monk and his cat, each with their own form of work that fills their day. The unspoken but deeply felt connection between a man and his animal companion is shown through Smith’s watercolor and ink panels.
