" dogs have owners.... Cats have staff" we all know that famous quote, and this is why!
I had to dock a half a star for the lazy brand of cheesiness the text sometimes meandered into--phrases like "purr-fect" and "catitude" were lame old jokes when they appeared on my Garfield notebooks in second grade.
Catitude! What exactly does it mean? Well, a purr-fect children's fiction book that gives you an insight to our fabulous feline friends is "It's All About ME-ow." It was written and illustrated by Hudson Talbott and he does a fantastic job! Buddy, quite a wise old cat, takes us on a catwalk through feline history. This book is a great read for all ages. Read it and find out why cats really do rule!

This would make a better one-on-one sharing than a read-aloud, as there are a lot of things going on in the illustrations.

Part information, mostly the voice of bravado from the narrator - a cat who is training three kittens who are new to the household. Very funny. Same guy who did United Tweets of America. I think this would be great for 3rd grad...more

The illustrations are lively and fun, though not exceptional.
A must for cat lovers of preschool age through adult, and a good way to teach a child who is too young for nonfiction books about their new or existing feline pet.
Told by an adult cat to new kittens in a home, this "guide" mixes fact with a fun narration. In fact, I would not be surprised if some libraries put this in non-fiction.
The book has fun, adorable and dynamic illustrations that perfectly depict cat behavior, giving fun and factual explanations.
You really just need to read it for yourself.
Great for one-on-one reading; not a great storytime book.
