“Close Your Eyes, Gideon,” opens on Gideon doing what any cat with a sunny garden would do – sleep in the shade and dream of food. Suddenly and rudely he is awakened from his raspberry-rippled reverie by a loud and pained screeching. Gideon discovers that he has rolled over on top of a nervous little garden mole named Jeff, who is now stuck under Gideon's bum and is struggling in vain to free himself.
“Don't eat me! Don't eat me!”
Gideon reassures Jeff that he is no typical house cat, rather a gourmet cat, and as such, not interested in eating a scrawny mole. As a “Foodie Cat,” Gideon will settle only for the finer things in life – like profiteroles! Yum!
Encouraging the reader to empathize and reach out to those who come from other perspectives is the thematic focus of "Close Your Eyes, Gideon." Jeff, a mole, is as blind as a bat and is used to life in the dark. Loaded down with a healthy helping of imagination and a dash of only the finest salt-to-taste, Gideon sets out to build a bridge between his world and Jeff's. Together, they tour the city and 'swashbuckle' through the sea, sharing their ways of seeing … or in Jeff's case, of not seeing.
