Extraordinarily original. Hamweenie is a wonderfully mischievous cat. Looking forward to seeing what comes next. This book now tops my list of favorite children book - and the best part, this book is for 'children of all ages.'
This children's book is truly a gem. Anyone, children and adults alike, who adores a dramatic feline will appreciate the beautiful artwork and humor in this tale. I'm pretty sure Ms. Bowman must have known my cat Marshal when she wrote this charming book. I certainly look forward to the continuing adventures of Hamweenie, as well as other possible fun treasures. I have at least 10 friends who would love a Hamweenie T-shirt or stuffed animal! Congratulations, Ms. Bowman on a creating a new beloved character!
