The Addiction Monster And The Square Cat

Follow along with Pumpkin, the square cat, as he tells the story of his beloved Scotty Boy whom he watched go from a young, carefree, talented, drug-free popular kid to his descent into the hellish world of drugs. The book also tells of other young children whose dreams and ambitions were shattered by the Addiction Monster. GOOD KIDS DO DRUGS TOO. Kids from the right side of the tracks are being derailed by the Addiction Monster. Any parent who thinks that addiction could not happen in their family needs to read this book. Addiction is a family and societal disease. No one is immune. Like an octopus, addiction spreads its tentacles around all of us, encompassing us in its all too often deadly grasp. This is a book that can be read and shared with your younger child, opening up opportunities to discuss drugs. Kids are hearing all about drugs in school. It’s important they hear about them at home – how addiction can destroy lives.

If you have had the privilege of reading Ms. McGinnis' other books, than you will clearly know that this one.......though written more for adolescents, it is nothing short of telling it "like it is" on a level that both parents and children will learn from...... together!! The topic of drug addiction in this world, is as real as the chair you are sitting on, whether you want to face it or not, or whether you think that it will never happen to you, someone you love, and most of all..... you children, who are exposed at a much younger age than you could possibly imagine!! This book is a wake-up call, told from the perspective of a cute, but sassy cat! The reader will understand the urgency of the problem, long before the final page, but you won't be able to put it down until the very end!! A MUST-READ is purely an understatement, and should be a part of every child's and parents' library, as well as every school library....... world wide!! It took me all of a 30 minutes to read the book, because I could hardly wait to see what was said on the following pages - just as you will!! This book will hit you squarely between the eyes, as you begin to understand the seriousness of the message!! Without giving it away, just know that there are moments of humor, as well as sadness, though being addicted to drugs and alcohol, is in no way a laughing matter!! Our children are dropping like flies on a daily basis, and without educating yourselves and your children, before they start experiementing, (which all children do - even though they may have heard of the dangers), you may well miss the signs - which you will also learn in this magnificent, yet hard hitting jewel of book!! Whatever you do.........don't miss it, or any other of Ms. McGinnis' work, as she speaks from first hand experience!!
