About D.C. Blackbird

D.C. Blackbird is an American poet, songwriter, and author, along with being a world-renowned adventurer and traveler to places that stamp passports with bark and tree sap. In case you never heard, D.C. is one of the world's greatest feather & leaf jugglers and has performed this great skill before Royal Courts throughout Europe as well as in diners throughout New Jersey between snacking on corn muffins.

You probably know that D.C. is the best-selling author of titles that include: Jekyll Says … (Good Deeds Cats Do, That You Should, To!), Jekyll Says More! (Lessons & Trends For Felines & Friends), and Dreaming of Kittyland, but there is more to this remarkable human being, so please don’t just judge D.C. by the pretty words.

Blackbird is one of “those vegans” you have probably heard about and maybe you have even seen hanging out at health stores ordering wheat grass juice. But don’t worry! D.C. does not glow in the dark (except after drinking grape juice), but veganism IS contagious. You have been warned.

Oh, yeah, and D.C. is also one of those animal-loving folks that cares for dogs, cats, birds, and runs into traffic with a cardboard box to save turtles in the middle of the road.

If you ask nicely, D.C. Blackbird may be available to come to your home for Roasted Tempeh and Marzipan treats.

But the main stuff you are interested in is that D.C. is dedicated to telling stories about awesome experiences and adventures with cool earthlings around the world, and teaching readers to be compassionate to all living beings, while promoting and encouraging goodness, civic virtues, high principles, and values.

Jekyll is a genius! It is a delight to look at life's simple pleasures through the eyes of this very wise cat. Children and adults alike will smile when they read this and look at the great illustrations. So many times we all forget the important things in life, sunshine, being happy good treatment of all living things, and this book really sends that message home thru the eyes of a wonderful character.

This is a delightful and creative book, that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

As an animal lover myself, I appreciated the positive message conveyed towards the humane treatment of animals, and that sales will benefit animal care, welfare, adoption and rescue organizations.

The positive message in each poem is not only a creative learning tool for children, but a reminder to adults as well.

After reading the poems, I had to go back and check out the incredible illustrations. They certainly put a smile on my face.

If this books is ever printed in hard copy, it will definitely become part of my library.

I just finished reading a book about a philosopher cat named Jekyll. It is delightful, informative and fun.The author's imagination and instincts about the animal world shine from every poetic paragraph. The wisdom Jekyll relates fits an audience from three to eighty and is presented in a friendly easy to accept manner and is as much a message to adults as to children about living the good life full of zest and respect for living things.

I must admit, I am an animal lover and have befriended a stray cat family of five. I had them all neutred for their own benefit and the community's. I loved them and treated them well, but unfortunately they had bad habits it did not bode well for them. After two years the only family member still with me is Bushie who would love to read "Jekyll Says" Indeed Bushie's whole family would have profited
from Jekyll's advice as you may also find.
