Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From saber-toothed to tabby, cats have had a prominent place in human history, society, and hearts. Now cat lovers of all ages can discover what's lurking behind kitty's twitching tail and bewitching eyes in M is for Meow: A Cat Alphabet.

Beginning readers enjoy the simple rhymes, while older children discover facts about each letter topic in the accompanying sidebar expository.

M is for Meow
Feed me, pet me, come and play.
Let me out, please go away!
A cat fits all these thoughts somehow
into the tiny word MEOW!

General topics such as breeds, behavior, and cat care alternate with charming anecdotal entries. Lavish paintings of cat and owner appeal to enthusiasts of all ages. A back section on cat stats and feline facts provides even more information for pet owners.

Review:

"[H]ighly recommended and is guaranteed to enchant young cat lovers who seek a deeper understanding of their feline friends." Children's Literature

Review:

"The pictures are...gorgeous....But the book is jam-packed with facts and ephemera that will be beyond the grasp of an audience reading below a third-grade level." School Library Journal
