Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Domestic cats and kittens have always composed verse, but much of their work has yet to be translated from the original feline and Meow. Humorist Deborah Coates has come to the rescue with 150 Cat Haiku, accompanied with cute faux-Japanese line drawings: "Surprise! I can jump/ Through the newspaper while you/ Are still reading it!" (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

My Granddaughter loves this book. I started reading it to her when she was in Kindergarden. Now she is in first grade and askes to borrow my Nook when she comes over so she can read it. She loves the drawings that go with the poems. I love it too, as does my daugher.
