Download and read online Joey and Parker in PDF and EPUB Joey and Parker: A Tail of Two Cats is a picture book with text that links very well with the pictures. It is a true story dictated by two cats, Joey and Parker, who live with the author (sorry, guys, I am taking some credit here too). The author has a chronic illness which is no laughing matter. And yet some funny things have happened along the way, and the cats want to have their say. It is said that laughter is the best medicine. This book was written in good taste. However, it is not all fun and games. As a serious advocate for a cure for Parkinson’s disease, I felt compelled to add a chapter of my own and briefly but hopefully and effectively get on my soapbox for increased medical research funding for all diseases. Overall, this is a fun picture book intended to provide you with some lighthearted moments. Enjoy.
