The Amazing Hamweenie by Patty Bowman

A truly unique debut about a precocious cat with BIG dreams

Dressed in his signature top hat and black cape, Hamweenie is poised to earn his place among the most famous celebrities and daredevils of all time. From the stage to the red carpet, the skies to the sea, Hamweenie believes, without a doubt, that he will be the greatest star the world has ever seen.

The horrors of reality, alas, befall him: a beautiful apartment, a loving little girl, his every need fulfilled to excess. His treats are simply too delicious. His pillows? Beyond luxurious. Such torture! Hamweenie must escape! But with his wretchedly wonderful owner appearing at every turn, will he ever make it out of the apartment? From debut author and illustrator Patty Bowman comes a picture book about the secret life of cats and about dreaming big—no matter what your species.

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!
