Billy the cat was rescued from an abandoned house. Fraser was a two-year-old autistic child with a multitude of problems when he first met Billy at the cat protection shelter. Billy purred, laid his paws across Fraser and they have been inseparable ever since. Slowly but surely Billy has transformed Fraser's life. Fraser's mother Louise has watched her son move from being a child prone to anxiety, tantrums and sudden emotional meltdowns to now a much calmer, less moody four-year-old whose future looks a lot brighter.

People love Islands's diversity, wit and messages. The 30 original drawings and 30 interpretive poems are thought-provoking, stimulating and fun. The abstract drawings engage a person's own imagination so the colorer can call upon her or his own thoughts and feelings. Islands feeds the spirit and takes you on a fantasy adventure. Why is this book called Islands? Islands is about being an individual, about being yourself. When you are yourself, you are unique and apart from all other people, like an island in the sea is unique and apart from all other islands. In these abstract drawings, each shape is individual, unique and apart from all the other shapes. The shapes seem to float on the page, like islands floating in the sea. Each drawing then connects all the islands together to make a whole picture. In addition, each abstract drawing has a poem that interprets the design or the feeling of the drawing. Islands drawings and poems have a great variety of themes with the hope that they connect with people all over the globe. Some of the themes in this book are: rivers, elephants, love, being real, bon bons, light force, bugs, bears, Mandalas, repetition, clams, the number 3, clear minds, ghosts, pancakes, ocean, cobblestones, eyes, energy, etc.
